Re: The New GT40 Mk11 Project and Ken MacLeod
Yes indeed, Revvie was keeping company with Marjorie Wallace, the "Miss World"....I had lunch with Peter and Marjorie the day after the USGP in 1973. Peter was driving for McLaren at the time and Bill Smith, a fellow Ford dealer and old family friend was at the time part owner of McLaren International and McLaren Engines. (this is why I could spend the USGP in the McLaren pit) Bill arranged for Peter to do a promotional appearance for Ford dealers to promote the new Mustang II. We had lunch at the Glen Motor Inn. Peter and Marjorie were very nice and gracious amidst a bunch of Ford dealers who had no idea who they were, but were only there for the food and drink. I sat with Peter during the meal and had a very good conversation. At the time he was a partner in a Linclon-Mercury store in California so we were able to converse about both racing and the car business.
It was a tragedy to lose him in a freak accident. He was not the "socialite" that the press made him out to be, but rather a dedicated and committed racer. I seem to recall that Marjorie went on to hook up with a UK football star after Peters death.
