Trying to do some research on my Grandfather, Mike Pendleton. He was fairly active on the circuit in the early 60's, does anyone remember him? Would love to hear from you all!

Welcome Oliver. Here’s a very brief biography of your grandfather:

Re Mike Pendleton. Information from Motor Racing Register 1964 -
B 1931. Director of Motor Company. Address Grosvenor Garage Worplesdon Rd Guildford.
First race 1959 in Lotus VI. Club racing 60-61 with Lotus VI and VII plus one FJ race, 1961 competed with Lotus 17 and Condor FJ. 1962 17 races with Lister Jaguar. Success included 3rd in class Guards Trophy Brands Hatch. 1963 raced Jaguar 3.8 "also competed in Lotus 19 at Oulton Park and Brands Hatch (class 3rd)"

I have traced the Brands race as 6th October 1963 in 2495cc Lotus 19 Climax 6th overall/3rd in class.

Hope this helps

Our birth dates expert ReWind lists his birthday as 16th November 1931.

Here are the results the Racing Sports Cars site has for him:


He took his Lotus 19 to Nassau in December 1963, as discussed in this earlier thread:

Good bloke - early in my enthusiasm I was a school kid with my nose pressed to his Grosvenor (?) Garage window near Ryde's Hill, Guildford - simply in awe at his Lister-Jaguar, within...
