A Formula One Story

By Ian Courts - Posted on 12 November 2013


 Fast cars and racing are appealing topics for so many and Solihull Rotarians were able to hear at first hand about this speedy world, when Mike Ostroumoff entertained the club at one of its lunchtime meetings.  Mike's family came to the UK in the early years of the twentieth century. Mike himself got the break into racing when his secretary, knowing of his enthusiasm for the sport, suggested he should meet her racing driver husband!  Mike was signed up for three races and never looked back. A great insight into Formula One.
