Robert Smith added (Jan 2010): "I was the petrol pump boy at the Gloucester Road Garage in the early 1970s and Mr Sam Evans was a lovely old fella then who was always well turned out in a shirt and tie, a warehouseman's coat and usually his trilby hat. I was scrambling motorcycles in those days and he was always hapy to tell his wonderful memories of his racing days....... ".
