Spencer Flack

The British Historic Racing fraternity was shocked to learn of the death of Spencer Flack in late February.

The prodigious racer of post-war GP cars was killed in an accident at the Phillip Island circuit in Australia, when racing his ex-Jo Bonnier BRM P25.

The car overturned after making contact with a backmarker and was destroyed in a fiery accident.

The car, chassis 258, formerly owned by the late Amschel Rothschild, was the only survivor of its type.
