Break-ups are never easy, but they are sometimes necessary. I raced in Formula Vee for five years and we had some good times together, but it was finally time to move on.
It's been three months since we said farewell to each other, and Formula Vee seems to be doing quite well without me. After all, it has plenty of other friends to fall back on.
I'm not doing too badly either. I've moved on to Formula Ford 1600 - a great contemporary rival to Formula Vee in the late 1960s and early '70s, and for some the best junior single-seater racing category ever created.
