Alan Parker - died at Oulton Park, 1964?
Posted 14 June 2012 - 17:17
Could you please help, I am Group Scout Leader at 1st Cliviger (St john’s) Burnley.
We are putting together a local history booklet with regard to people buried in the grave yard, to use as a recourse for badge work, members of the armed forces, footballers and famous people.
We have the grave of ”Alan Parker” who was killed at Oulton Park on 30/3/1964,
Would it be possible to have any information regarding this accident as there is little on the internet.
Hope you can help.
Group Scout Leader

It was said that this was Parker's first race after losing an eye in a working accident at a coal mine.
Can anyone confirm this? I find it surprising that he would be allowed to race.
