Tony CrookFormer Grand Prix driver Tony Crook is celebrating his 91st birthday today!

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.
