Phil Irving's small notebooks, a look at a Vincent oriented one.....more pages

As previously mentioned, I've made several blogs under the general label of Phil Irving literature, this the second of several is devoted to a small notebook 4 1/2" x 6" he appears to have started following WW2 at his time at Vincent and continuing when he returned to Australia and was involved with Cooper-Vincent racing cars.
Again there is no comment from me on the content of these following pages but I strongly suggest you read PEI's Autobiography to give you an insight into the man and the information on the record attempts documented at Jabbeke in Belgium.
Left click on the images to enlarge.

Another small item for Vincent people who may not have seen it...
The death of Dennis Irving was noted in Australian newspapers the other year and the fact that his Rolls Royce car was to be auctioned off.
