A message from Riccardo:

I want to say a few words about a good friend of mine, Joanna Cardwell-Fox, who sadly died recently after a brave fight against illness. Joanna was a big motorsport enthusiast, a very talented designer, and a lovely lady.

I first met Joanna more than twenty years ago when she created an illustration for the Brooklands Museum Trust, and brought it to Italy for me to look at.  Over the years we met many times in England at Goodwood and also at the Silverstone GP Masters event and it was always a pleasure to see her.

In 2004 Joanna produced a limited edition t-shirt for me which we, with the help of Steve her partner, had fun signing for fans at the Goodwood Festival of Speed that year. We also spoke of producing a book about my career and I remember sitting in the entrance to Goodwood House looking at some of her plans and designs. Happy memories.

Soon after this website was created in 1999 Joanna began to collaborate with Michael. Her help, support and creativity have been invaluable over the years and the site would not be what it is now without her contribution. She, and her design ideas, will always remain a part of the website.

Ciao Joanna.
