Henry Taylor who not only rallied and raced but who became Ford of Britain motor sport manager died this evening at 5.30 in hospital herre in the South of France. He had heart and lung problems following a heavy bout of pleurisy last December and had been in hospital seriously ill.

I am sure our members will join me in sending condolences to his wife Peggy and his two sons.

More tragic news, 2013 has not been a good year.

 

Henry Taylor was a very fine racing driver whose record does not do him justice.

 

My sympathies to family and friends.

For those TNFers who have "Jim Clark - Life at Team Lotus", Page 17 has a photo of Henry Taylor, in his role of Ford Competitions Manager, and Jim Clark.
