Bit of a late response, but so far I have (and this is 500cc racing only) :
1955: Nine appearances in the Mackson, all at Brands Hatch. By the process of elimination, this was the BA Manning car, used by him in 1954.
1956: Eight appearances, again in the Mackson, and all in the South-East (Brands & Crystal Palace)
1957: Six appearances. more spread out around the country. 18th August he turns up at the Sachsenring, East Germany (and in the Mackson), but by the 6th October he's back at Brands Hatch
1958: Six events, now in the reworked Saxon 500 (though I've no idea how it was reworked). Again, he attends the Sachsenring (17/08) in the car, but then I've nothing for him or the car thereafter. Clearly for 1959 he converted the car for Formula Junior
Quite what his relationship with the Sacshsenring was isn't obvious. He doesn't appear to have made a "European Summer Tour" as he doesn't appear in any other European results I have. He doesn't appear in the other (bike) races at the Sachsenring. And of the Brits, only Donald Wagner accompanied him in 1957, and George Henrotte in 1958.
