We can finally confirm the date of our long awaited interview with Stewart Garner. We’re going up to Donington on April 5th and we’ll be spending time with SG and a 961. A transcript of the former and a review of the latter will be posted by May 12th.
Responsibility for the long delay rests entirely on our side. We had originally hoped to meet up with Stewart last November around the time of the NEC, and then decided to wait until the New Year. At which point we pulled out again. Our reasoning was that various events were unfolding which related to both Norton and our original story. We decided to hold back until such matters had run their course: running an interview which would rapidly have been overtaken by new developments made no sense at all – Norton’s recent acquisition of Donington Hall, Hastings House and associated land being just one example.
While we can’t go into details, we can say that all concerned want to keep this real – credibility matters far more than personal agendas. It should be an interesting day.
