Olly raced FVee and SuperVee in the UK and Europe during the 70's and 80's. He won the British SuperVee championship in 1977 and 1979. He was also instrumental in the setting up of the Beetle Cup in the 90's. He took up sailing and flying once he stopped racing but was always a keen follower of F1. A great guy who lived life to the full.
I have posted on this forum because I saw a few links to this site when I searched for his name on Google. Thought there may be a few drivers, marshals and journalists who would remember him?
