The Club Office has learned that one of the BRDC’s oldest and longest-serving Members passed away on Wednesday 28th June at the age of 95. Maurice was originally elected as a Full Member of the Club in 1952, becoming a Life Member in 1990. His racing career principally involved 500 cc Formula 3 racing in a JBS-Norton with which he enjoyed success, particularly at Brands Hatch. The JBS was the creation of speedway rider Alf Bottoms and was seen as a serious rival to the ubiquitous Coopers. Tragically Alf Bottoms was fatally injured in practice for the 1951 Luxembourg Grand Prix and not long afterwards one of the leading JBS drivers, ‘Curley’ Dryden, crashed fatally while in the lead of a race at Castle Combe. Maurice decided to call it a day and concentrate of safer pursuits such as golf.

A chartered surveyor and property consultant by profession, Maurice was a proud Member of the BRDC and took a keen interest in Club matters for many years. To Maurice’s wife Rosemary, to his son James and his whole family the BRDC offers its most sincere condolences.

Members are invited to Maurice’s funeral which will take place at 11.30 on Thursday 3rd August at Putney Vale Cemetery and Crematorium (East Chapel), Stag Lane, SW15 3DZ followed by a light lunch at the Richmond Golf Club, Sudbrook Park (RSVP to Linda Way
