    It is always sad to hear about a death, worse when it is someone who was so important to your favourite sport, even more when the person concerned is younger than yourself. Charlie was not always the most popular of people bet even when he did give judgements that we did not like we still respected him and his position.

    The cars should be held on the start line on Sunday as a tribute to him.

    I'm sure they will do something. Probably a moments silence on the grid.

    I'm well over 40 but I can't remember who started the races before Charlie! Was it a different person ("guest"?) every time?

    It was a local dignity quite often. Stirling commented one time that the starter had been Louis Chiron, the real starter stood behind him and gave him a prod when it was time; Moss watched the starter instead of Chiron and got a jump on the rest of the field.
