    Pete Biro passed away on 24 December condolences to his family friends and legions of fans of his work for what it's worth here's my noteHe was an amazingly nice man proud of his work but even proud of the multitude of friendships that he shared across the wide world of motor racing and magic He always had a smile for me it was a bit crooked at times it was like Stokes what the hell are you talking about which he never said aloud; but I knew full well he was thinking His photography framed a huge amount of my world for untold years and just one of his tiniest uickest now you thought you saw it slight of hand throwaways kept my head spinning for hours after he tossed it at me with a uick wave of his hand It was soundless musicPete Biro's photographic work simply stands for itself it's the record of the time And like all great work it has now outpaced the man who created it Damn right he'll be missed dearly but he'll be remembered even Thanks Pete an honor and a big smile to know ya Doug Stokes122718 I've not seen this book yet but long knowing that Pete and George are two of the very best my expectations for this book run very high Pete's wry smile and uick wit will be greatly missed but we all get to keep and enjoy his distinctly personal work
