Looking Back # Pedro Figueruelo Parra

   Pedro Figueruelo Parra was a historic motorsport journalist whose death unknown until a few hours ago. Together with the photographer Luis Gabriel Ayuso taught me to be on a race circuit with a camera in my hands and always made ​​me feel part of the tribe of  Marca sportnewspaper.  In deference to his attitude towards me, in 1993 I gave him my vintage slot cars but no the boxes that the other day I found at home. Pedro, I'll give to your daughter the boxes for the Ferrari B-3 and Brabham BT-46 and them they can Rest in Peace until the next race. Thank You for all.
