Footnotes

  • The vendor informs us that he acquired this helmet as a spectator at the event after the home crowd cheered a jubilant Fogarty after the race, who subsequently launched the helmet into the stands (an account of this appears on page 220 of the autobiography offered with the lot), a photograph of the vendor in the stands wearing the helmet immediately after his 'lucky catch' is also included in the lot.
