This year one of the most popular and literally one of the best known figures in British racing circles will be missing from the pits, E. J. Anderson, familiarly known to two generations of racing men as “Castrol Andy,” is to retire at the close of this season. Short in inches but big in every other way, “Andy” has been Wakefield’s Racing Manager for thirty years and during that time has been associated with nearly every outstanding racing and record-breaking event.

Joining the firm from school in 1909 he served as an Infantry Captain in World War I. Appointed Racing Manager shortly after demobilisation, he was a successful competitor in a number of car and motor-cycle trials. In retirement “Andy” tells me he plans, among other things, to devote more time to the extraction of those fish which have so cunningly eluded him during his business career. George Williams, late of R.A.F. Coastal Command, who has been “Andy’s” assistant for over a year, will succeed him as “Castrol” Racing Manager.
