James was a superb "racer", whose talent shone in whatever car he earned a seat, and he was a popular choice with owners who wanted to see their cars finish at the front of a field. He produced many giant-killing performances, particularly in two-driver races, but was equally at home driving his Bugatti Brescia on VSCC winter trials, where he was a regular winner.
In the paddock, in the bar or on the dance floor his was a cheering presence with an ever-present smile and a firm handshake, and never gave a hint of the health problems which he fought bravely to overcome.
I will miss him, and to his wife, family and all his friends in the vintage car world I offer my sincere condolences.
James is congratulated by Denis Welch after a hard-fought battle at Oulton Park in 2005

James' beloved Brescia was driven to the church by Mags
Three of the cars in which he had much recent success were displayed in tribute.
