NOTICE OF DEATH - RICHARD FOX (1953 - 2021)

The Club office has learned that Richard Fox died on 30 December. He was 68 years of age and had been suffering from cancer for some time. Richard was elected to the BRDC as an Associate Mechanic Member in 1998.

After leaving school, Richard was employed by Neil Corner to maintain his very varied collection of historic cars ranging from a 1914 TT Sunbeam to a Mercedes-Benz W154 and Auto Union D-type to a Maserati 250F and Jaguar E-type Lightweight, in due course assuming sole responsibility for ensuring that every car was in perfect condition for use by Neil and son Nigel. With the E-type Nigel and the late Barrie ‘Whizzo’ Williams enjoyed considerable success in historic GT racing. Although Neil and Nigel are perhaps more associated with historic racing, Nigel ventured into contemporary touring cars with a BMW E30 M3 for the preparation of which Richard was also responsible. In 1992, together with ‘Whizzo’, Pete Clark and Werner Kather, Nigel won the Nurburgring 24 Hours, the Spa 24 Hours and came close to winning the Willhire 24 Hours at Snetterton in the M3.

The BRDC extends its deepest condolences to Richard’s partner Margaret.
