    Hi yes I can. Jeff Goodliff is my uncle and he is living in London. As far as I know he is still involved in motorsport and he acts as a consultant and regularly travels to Portugal with the team that he works for. Sadly I did hear yesterday that Harry's alzheimers has really progressed and he is being looked after in hospital in Littleborough-very sad-a great man and a great character-they dont make them like that any more.

    Hi,Jeff ran my car for 4 years for me in the 90's, we even went over to new zealand together to do the wellington 500. before I lost touch with him,I live in London so if all is still well with Jeff and you can pass on any contact details it would be great to meet up with him again! So any info you have please email it to me,many thanks Graham.
