Riseley-Prichard's competition career began modestly in 1952 and '53 at national level with a Riley, but in 1954 he bought Rob Walker's Connaught, which he drove mainly in minor races (winning an obscure Formula 1 event at Davidstow, Cornwall), but also in that year's British Grand Prix. John raced it for fun in Formula Libre events into the 1955 season, but when he let the young Tony Brooks take the wheel he soon realised his limitations as a driver.

He shared a works Aston Martin with Brooks in that year's Le Mans 24-hour race, but in the wake of Levegh's terrible accident his family is thought to have persuaded him to retire from the sport and concentrate on his profession as a Lloyd's insurance broker.
