Good ole Mike 'Honorific' Wilds...

"I was at the Targa in 1970 with Jo Siffert who was driving one of the new Porsche 908/3's.

A fantastic event, I couldn't learn the circuit, it was so long and treacherous, made the Nordschleife seem like a 'walk in the park'!!

I was good friends with an Italian driver called Ignazio Giunti, sadly killed in the Buenos Aires 1000k's in 1971 in a works Ferrari 312PB.

At the Targa in 1970 he drove a works Ferrari 512, when he came in for his first pit stop I spoke to him to see how it was going. He looked in pain and as he spoke to me he took his driving gloves off and showed me the palms of his hands.

It was like looking at two pieces of raw meat!!! He had worked so hard in that big car that he had blistered and taken most of the skin off the palms of his hands!!

Motor racing in those days could be and was very hard on occasion!"
