Profile

Joe Fry, part of the famous Midlands chocolate family, was a prominent hillclimb driver during the late 1930s. He was the primary driver for the Shelsley Special Freikaiserwagen, created by his cousin David Fry and Hugh Dunsterville. He finished tenth in the 1950 British Grand Prix, driving a Maserati, but 11 weeks later was killed at a hillclimb in Blandford, Devon when his Freikaiserwagen rolled on a grassy bank throwing him out.
