One-time F1 driver Peter Ashdown is turning 76 today.
Once recovered, he contested a single outing – the 1959 British Grand Prix at Aintree – in a Formula 2 Cooper-Climax, qualifying 23rd and finishing 12th.
Thereafter, he drove a Formula Junior Lola and sports cars, twice achieving class wins at the Nurburgring 1000km race in 1960 and 1962, retiring from all motorsport at the end of the year.
