A real celebration of Con's life ! I couldnt be there unfortunately, not sure if someone was getting his own back for the blown up hire car ;) but some tricks were being played for sure - Thanks Con, an absolute pleasure to have known you :D

I wonder how much stick Con would have been getting today following Top Gear last night.

Hammond's red calipers only cost him 300 quid.

:D

Lotus currently offer a switch to black (from red) at no cost.

I'm sticking with red :blush:

Have no fear Ian, Con's car is sporting a fresh new set of rear red calipers which hopefully shouldn't turn brown :)

My pleasure Con :sweet:

I wore my Con shirt while I was skiing a couple of weeks ago. Felt a bit weird actually, wearing it while doing what took him from us.

I have to say I do think about him occasionally at random times.

Always fond memories.

I didn't know Con, but reading through the thread its really touching seeing everyone coming together like that, he was obviously a well liked guy. Very sad

I'm with Sean. Especially as we approach the anniversary of his passing I too have random moments where my thoughts turn to remembering Con....always with a smile.

Genuinely looking forward to seeing Beth and Con's family again at Anglesey....

Are we having a secret ballot for this years recipient of Con's Red Caliper Award???
