Sandy Pirie was a white-haired chauffeur who drove Tommy Deakin, Michael Ryan and Stan Ogden to the races in style in a hired Rolls Royce in May 1974. The men made a day of it, drinking wine in the back while en route and stopping for a picnic on the way home. At Tommy's insistence, Sandy had a drink of wine and let Stan take over the driving; a former lorry driver and lifelong beer lover, Stan claimed that alcohol had no effect on him. The plan backfired when the Rolls was pulled over by the police and Stan breathalysed, earning him a fine for speeding, DUI and driving with an out-of-date licence.
