Connaught A Type

One of the top 500 cc F3 Cooper drivers in the early 1950s, 'Big Bill' raced Gordon Watson's F2 Alta briefly in 1951 before breaking out of the tiddler class in 1954 with his own F2 Connaught sensibly keeping to Libre and national events with the exception of the British GP.

After an accident, Bill retired but, once fit, the lure of the track proved too great for this enthusiast. In 1957, he bought an F2 Cooper-Climax, which he raced at Syracuse, and when his car suffered engine trouble at Reims he was delighted to be loaned the works Bob-tail 'streamliner' for the race. Tragically, he was to meet his death when a tyre appeared to burst as he approached Thillois, the car somersaulting and bursting into flames.
