A mainstay of the South African motor racing scene as driver, constructor and later entrant, Doug - a former grass track and speedway rider both at home and abroad - began his circuit racing career driving a Triumph TR2 in 1956, before starting work on the first of his home-built LDS specials, the initials being derived from his full name (Louis Douglas Serrurier).

A trip to Europe saw Doug initially purchase a Cooper T51 from Alan Brown, and further machines ordered from the factory were soon to follow, including the lowline T53 which provided the inspiration for his own LDS Mk2 of 1961. Powered by an Alfa Romeo engine, this was just one of a gradually evolving series of cars that were developed during the early sixties, later models being based upon Brabham designs (much to the chagrin of Jack Brabham). They were driven, for the most part, by Serrurier himself and another veteran, Rhodesian star Sam Tingle.

By 1966 it was becoming increasingly impractical to compete with the major constructors so, after sharing Roy Pierpoint's Lola T70 to take second place in the Cape Town 3 Hours, Serrurier decided to buy one of these cars, which he then shared with Jackie Pretorious, winning the Roy Hesketh 3 Hours in 1967. After more or less retiring from racing at the end of 1969, Serrurier entered Pretorious in the South African F1 series with a Surtees, but still had occasional road and rally outings himself as well as trying his hand at powerboat racing.

Until he was well into his seventies, Serrurier continued to build and rebuild fast cars such as the AC Cobra and the Ferrari Daytona to his usual superb standards in his backyard workshop near Johannesburg, often incorporating his own suspension designs.
