On August 28, we lost our great and good champion, Phil Hill. The entire world of motor sports is saddened. He was a wonderful and honorable friend who will be sorely missed.
After hearing of Phil’s passing, it was inevitable that many of us were on the phone with one another. Carroll Shelby said, “Phil and I had a 60-year friendship. He could take anything apart and put it back together. He could even tune pianos. I talked with Derek three times the day before Phil passed on, and I was able to communicate to Phil that I loved him.”
