REG PARNELL d1964. English F1 driver 1950-54 who participated in seven World Championship Grands Prix with teams including ; Alfa Romeo / BRM and (non works Ferrari / Maserati & Cooper) achieving one podium and scoring a total of nine championship points. He as both a driver and a team manager had a considerable influence on post-war British motorsport until his premature death in 1964. He raced at Brooklands and was banned following an accident with Kay Petre which ended her racing career. Before the war he had bought up racing cars and once the hostilities had ceased he sold them to form the basis of his post-war racing entries. He later raced a whole host of cars before turning to management and taking Aston Martin into Formula 1. He later went on to run the Yeoman Credit Racing Team with the help of his son (Tim) who later raced in Formula 1 himself. He died aged just 52 in 1964 after a routine appendix operation went wrong.
