This is a question about a story, one which you may know the answer to... Did Roger really want to name one of your children "Ulster", after he and Mark won their first International together there? :)
I am probably one of the few people who had the pleasure of seeing Mark drive the RS200, the Sierra RS and the Subaru, probably the three most significant cars in his career. It was a delight to see Mark come out of retirement and enjoy his rallying so much again, and I was so pleasantly surprised when Mark and Roger reunited their partnership... to me, seeing "Mark Lovell/Roger Freeman" on an entry list was seeing one of the great partnerships in rallying, like Hannu Mikkola/Arne Hertz or Markku Alen/Ilka Kivimaki.
Mark and Roger made a huge impression on rallying in America, so I don't think it will be possible to stop this page from keeping going! You, Julia and the children will be in all our thoughts and prayers.
