A very useful driver in Formula Junior, Rees drove for the works Lotus team in 1962, taking three wins before a crash in a Lotus 23 at the N?rburgring 1000 Km sports car race curtailed his season.

For 1963, he joined the Roy Winkelmann team and would become its mainstay as both driver and, later, team manager. Concentrating on Formula 2 between 1964 and 1968, Rees drove countless races in the team's Brabhams, often beating the stars of the day, such as Rindt, Stewart and Clark. However, his Grand Prix opportunities were limited to a couple of races in the Winkelmann F2 car and a single outing in a rather tired works Cooper at the 1967 British GP.

By the end of 1968, Rees had decided that he was not going to progress any further as a driver and he retired to the team manager's role, before becoming a founder member of March, later acting as team manager of Shadow and Arrows.
