John raced in 2 seasons in formula ford, in his second year he was sponsored by the owner of Sharrow Snuff (wilsons) and our garage( Snuff mill). his car was prepared by Coldwell Enginnering....Steve Myers who worked for Bill told me this.
thanks very much for the photos Nick, John did two seasons in FF these pics where from his second year(he was sponsored by Pearsons Pottery in his first year).
he crashed at Oulton park-the nose of the merlin went under the Armco and his chest was trapped.He was running second in the BOC championship but he died of cancer a week after his last race -24th oct 1971. Tony Brise won the BOC and went on to drive the Embassy F1 car with Graham hill.
we where due to go to South Africa to do the Sunshine series during the winter.John was the quickest driver that I knew, had he survived the name Hamilton would have been in F1 much sooner I am sure.
best wishes Steve
