NOTICE OF DEATH - IAN TITTERINGTON 1932 - 2015

The Club office has only just learned of the death last November of BRDC Life Member Ian Titterington of Holywood, County Down. Ian was elected as a Full Member in 1955, having competed in the RAC Tourist Trophy races at the challenging Dundrod circuit in both 1954 and 1955 in a Triumph TR2. These races were the British round of the World Sports Car Championship. On both occasions Ian finished 21st overall and in 1955, with co-driver Wilbert Todd, came second in the 2-litre class to the Maserati A6GCS of Andre Loens/Joakim Bonnier.

One of the stars of that 1955 TT was Ian’s cousin the late Desmond Titterington who shared a lone factory Jaguar D-type with Mike Hawthorn and so impressed Alfred Neubauer that he was invited to share a Mercedes-Benz 300SLR with American John Fitch in the Targa Florio a few weeks later, between times finishing third for Vanwall in the Formula 1 Oulton Park Gold Cup. For business reasons Ian’s racing career was largely confined to Ireland, beginning with a Singer Roadster in 1952 at Wicklow. A Dellow earned Ian third place in an Open Handicap race at Dublin’s Phoenix Park in 1954 and, with the Triumph TR2 he also finished third at the short-lived Cranfield circuit in 1955. The TR2 brought Ian further success in 1956 with victories at Cranfield and Kirkistown and a couple of second places at the latter circuit.
