The Ulsterman may have driven in only a single Grand Prix but he was a very fine driver indeed, and had he not chosen to suddenly retire from competition at the end of the 1956 season would quite probably have become a household name. Having gained experience in an Allard in novice trials and handicaps from 1951, Titterington joined Ecurie Ecosse for the 1953 Tourist Trophy at Dundrod, finishing sixth with Dickson in an Aston Martin. Early the following year he showed his versatility by taking sixth place in the Monte Carlo Rally in a Jaguar and then raced his own Triumph TR2 before receiving an invitation to rejoin Ecurie Ecosse, who had lost the services of the injured Jimmy Stewart. Racing the Scottish team's Jaguar, he was second in the BARC 9 Hours at Goodwood in 1955, and also won a number of national events for them. In addition he drove for Mercedes in the 1955 Targa Florio, finishing fourth with John Fitch. So impressed were Jaguar that they signed him as a works driver for major sports car races, Desmond taking third place at Reims in 1956.

In Formula 1, he scored a superb third at Oulton Park in 1955 on his debut for Vanwall, and also took third in the 1956 International Trophy for Connaught, for whom he drove in that year's British GP. What a pity that business and family reasons deprived the racing world of the chance to see how his career might have developed.
