One Night a Boy had a Dream

craigracingcar (2)

It was one day in the year 1961, whilst driving home after the South African Grand Prix in East London, that the young boy told his father that Jim Clark (see featured picture at top of page) would one day be the champion driver of the world. The young boy was in a bad mood, because the young Clark had beaten his hero, Stirling Moss. And for the next few years the young South African boy followed the rising Scot star’s ascending career with great interest and pride. So that the new shooting star eventually usurped the place of the now retired old hero, Moss after his near fatal accident at Goodwood, UK…until it too was tragically extinguished in a minor race at Hockenheim, Germany in 1968.

And that night in the “early sixties”, the young boy lay on his bed and read the race program, over again and again. Then he fell asleep and dreamt, peacefully, blissfully. Perhaps one day… one sunny day…

“If you can dream it, then you can DO it!”

All our dreams can come true…if we have the desire (burning), determination, courage, passion, persistence and patience* to pursue them (and it’s often through the very dark places where they may lead)…long enough.”

“I was taught that everything is attainable, if you’re prepared to give up, to sacrifice, to get it. Whatever you want to do, you can do it, if you want to do it badly enough. However, most humans quit too soon in life.” *

– former British racing driver Stirling Moss’s famous quote

“The characters seem to represent the virtues and the resilience of the ‘little’ people, a story (or stories) to which we can all relate. In essence it’s about hope and faith: a tale (and tales) of the unquenchable spirit of tenacity in battling on, no matter what are our circumstances. And then eventually finding a way, a pathway to overcome personal adversity … and to ultimately succeed in glorious triumph.”

“When (and where) love endures, hope inevitably follows”

– the writer “
