Seasons1950-1954
Had it not been for World War II, this farmer and haulage contractor from Derby might well have matured into one of Britain's great Grand Prix drivers. As it was he gained a reputation as a steady, dogged and supremely versatile runner in almost every category. He retired to the post of team manager at Aston Martin at the end of the 1954 season and later ran the Yeoman Credit/Bowmaker teams from which he developed Reg Parnell Racing at the start of 1963. He died of peritonitis following medical complications after a routine appendix opertion.
