John Price RIP

The 2300 Club’s Ian Grindrod shares a memory

I first met John in the bar of the Misnish on Mull in 1972. I think because he had an Alpine Renault, my all time favourite rally car, I casually asked him if I could co-drive for him. He  a star name and I was still a nobody trying my best to climb the rallying ladder. He took one look at me and turned his back, continuing to drink his pint. I couldn’t blame him because he must have thought “Who the hell does this long haired scruff think he is?”
Over the years I never let that tale drop with John on the many occasions our paths crossed. He was good humoured enough to tell me that it was maybe a regret on his part. I told him that as soon as he got rid of the Alpine Renault, then I wouldn’t have been interested anyway. He said that as he then had a Metro 6R4 he presumed I might have found a ride in the very same model with Jim McRae and that ignoring me was him doing me a favour. Good lad JP. RIP
