Peter Page is another on the list of biogs required in another place!
The only information I can supply is that he suddenly appeared in my stuff in 1948, ordering one of the first dozen Cooper Mk IIs. The chassis was a 500cc -only version. First appearance was at the Brighton Speed Trials, 4th September, where Austen May refers to him as "a new recruit". His car was a dark green, and notable because he favoured the number 13.
He appeared later in 1948 at the British Grand Prix round, finishing 9th (and last), despite being one of many who were rather unprepared for the start flag. I only have eleven race entries in my records, finishing with the British Grand Prix, May 1950. That appears to be it for his 500 career, as he does not appear in the 1951 Who's Who. KJJ's dates suggest it is the same Peter Page, so I would assume he did something more to gain his membership.
If you visit http://www.500race.o...ues/JLR 500.htm I believe that car 33 in the first picture may be Peter Page in 1949.
