lotusgoodwood2002It is with deep regret that we must record the death of Barry Foley. Many of you may have been of been familiar with his work in the guise of the "Catchpole" strip cartoon that appeared in the Autosport magazine for some 679 issues.

A gifted graphic artist Barry was also responsible for two of the seminal F1 liveries of all time. Namely the John Player Lotus and the Citibank Tyrrell P34 six wheeler, both of which became instant public and media icons. Indeed the Lotus is possibly amongst the most widely recognized images of the sport.

To Barry's family and friends we offer our most sincere wishes.
