Profile

A Barnstaple garage proprietor, Dick Gibson took part in two grand prix, both in Germany, in 1957 and 1958, driving a Cooper Climax on both occasions. He failed to finish either because of mechanical failure. He was a regular entrant in non-Championship F1, initially in an A-type Connaught but often encountered reliability issues there was well.
