Despite possessing only limited experience gained with a Cooper-Bristol, Halford purchased the ex-Bira Maserati 250F in 1956 but tasted success only in minor F1 races, his best placing being third at Caen in both 1957 and '58. By then, however, the car was showing its age and he turned to a Lister-Jaguar and a year of national sports car racing - which must certainly have sharpened up his driving, for he was a much improved performer when he returned to single-seaters in 1959 with a new Lotus 16, though his best result was a third in the Silver City Trophy race at Snetterton, guesting for the BRM team.

In 1960 Halford handled a Cooper with only moderate success, thereafter scaling down his racing activities.

With the new-found popularity of historic racing in the late seventies, Bruce returned to the circuits at the wheel of an immaculate Lotus 16 and enjoyed himself immensely in the friendly but fiercely competitive atmosphere.
