Ref. M.G.D.’s article “Ken Tyrrell”, 1955 was not the last year in which the works D-type Jaguars appeared at Le Mans. Three cars competed in 1956, Hawthorn/Bueb finishing sixth after early fuel injection bothers and Frere and Fairman both retiring, after a second lap accident, with the other two works cars.
When Mr. Tyrrell mentions his test drive with Aston Martin he names one of those being tested on the same day as “Jackie Lewis, the hill-climb chap from Wales”. If this was the F1/F2 Cooper/F1 BRM exponent, I was under the impression that he didn’t begin his career until 1958. If it was another Lewis then I have learned of another Welsh racing driver to add to the few I already know of.
