        <p style=”text-align: left;”>I’ve just seen the notice on the Home page about David’s death. l’m sure there will be others, far more qualified than me, who will wish to pay tribute to David – and there will be obituaries too, of course. But l just wanted now, to say a few words in praise of David as he struck me; l only ever talked to him at the AOC social Zoom meetings, but l found his huge banks of knowledge, technical and engineering ability and colossal, precisely detailed memory, inspiring – even daunting. What a man! It is a privilege to have known and interacted (however fleetingly) with David. To hear him discuss historical Allard factory design details was pure joy. I do hope that Dean and David managed (as they agreed was a priority) to get together and swap stories and opinions – and that Dean and others in the Club will be able to publish the subject-matter.</p>
        Huge respect and thanks to David Hooper for all that he achieved for us as Allard enthusiasts, sharing his expertise and knowledge in the way he did. Tim.
