Profile

A motoring journalist who came good, Paul was always eager to retain his training and race for fun. With remarkably little experience beyond racing an MG, he found himself driving an HWM in the 1952 Belgian Grand Prix and he came fifth... Paul was in and out of drives in the latter half of the 1950s and thus his second-place finish for Ferrari at Spa in 1956 was the utmost surprise. He also managed to win the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1960.
