Dick, then a director of a motor company in Barnstaple, bought Tony Crook's modified Cooper-Bristol to embark on competition, but soon switched to an A-Type Connaught which he raced in 1955 and through 1956 with modest success. But it was with the acquisition of a rear-engined Formula 2 Cooper that he began to make a mark, sixth place in the International Coupe de Vitesse at Reims and seventh in the International Trophy at Silverstone being his best major placings in 1957.

Dick ran the Cooper again the following year, and after competing in New Zealand returned for the European season before venturing to South Africa early in 1959. It was a worthwhile trip, for he won three (Natal, Cape Town and Pietermaritzburg) of the four races and claimed the RAC South African International Championship. Naturally he returned the following year but, after finishing seventh in the South African Grand Prix, he was involved in a nasty shunt at another meeting which left him hospitalised. The damaged car was brought back to England and restored, with Dick preferring to allow Keith Ballisat, George Pfaff and Vie Wilson to drive it under the Equipe Prideaux banner.
