Legendary motoring journalist Bill Boddy died in the early hours of this morning at the age of 98.
He was the longest serving working journalist in Britain. Remarkably he wrote his first article for Motor Sport magazine in 1930, and submitted his final stories to the same publication last week.
Boddy was editor of Motor Sport from 1936 until 1991, and continued to write a monthly column.
He was acknowledged as the foremost authority on Brooklands, having attended many meetings there in his youth.
