Archie was a tiny Scot who made light of the disabilities caused by his mother having contracted German measles when he was in the womb. As a baby he underwent no fewer than 22 operations to repair and add as much function as possible to his partly formed right arm and badly deformed legs and feet. Determined to lead as full a life as the next man, he was always bursting with vitality and exuberance, and earned a living as a travelling salesman in order to fund his motor sport ambitions.

Scott-Brown began racing in 1950 in a minor way in an MG TD, but it was 1954 before he began to make his mark, forming a great partnership with Brian Lister to race his Lister-Bristol. Soon Archie was winning club and national events all over the country with the car, and he earned himself a chance in the Connaught F1 team for 1956, taking part in the British Grand Prix and finishing second in the International Trophy race. His performances drew admiration from everyone for the amazing way he handled any type of machinery - Fangio for one thought his car control was phenomenal.

In 1957, he had the opportunity to race the works BRM in the British GP but, after a brake problem in testing and discussions with friends, he was persuaded to decline the offer. However, he continued to race in sports cars and was now back with Lister, handling his ferocious Lister-Jaguar.

By this time Scott-Brown was greatly frustrated by his inability to gain an international licence, which stopped him competing abroad. He did obtain permission to race in New Zealand early in 1958, winning the Lady Wigram Trophy, but the following May, when competing in a big sports car race at Spa, he lost control of his Lister on a piece of damp track while dicing with Masten Gregory. He crashed into a field and the car burst into flames, the luckless Scot dying from his injuries the following day.
