Dazzlingly talented South Londoner who was recruited to drive for the British Racing Partnership Cooper team in 1960. He was rated as a man with a great future but he was killed in a grisly accident on the tricky downhill Burnenville right-hander at Spa-Francorchamps as he diced for third place in the Belgian GP with the Ferrari Dino 246 of Willy Mairesse.
