Despite having just two World Championship Grands Prix to his name, Tony was one of the most active racing drivers in post-war United Kingdom, both in single-seaters and sports cars.
In 1950, Tony began racing with Bristol-engined cars – racing a Frazer-Nash and a Cooper at consecutive British Grands Prix – before he retired in 1954 following a collision at the Goodwood 12 Hours with Stirling Moss that put him in hospital for two weeks. Crook would later assume the ownership of the Bristol Cars group.
