Profile

Born in Yorkshire, Dave Charlton moved to South Africa at a young age and was a leading local driver, winning the national Formula One championship every year from 1970 to 1975. He bought a string of ex-works car and entered 13 grands prix over 11 seasons, all but four of them in his homeland, but only finished three and none in the top ten. In 1971 he drove a Lotus in the British Grand Prix, shipping it home and returning for three more fruitless races in 1972.
