The Marquess Camden
Lord Camden, a member of the RAC since 1933, has died at the age of 83. His love of motor sport was nurtured by his old schoolfriend Henry Segrave, whom he accompanied on many of his record breaking attempts.
He represented the RAC on the CSI (before the formation of FISA) and also the FIA Committee. He was Chairman of the old RAC Competitions Committee and, in 1976, was elected the President of the newly formed RAC British Motor Sports Council. He will be sadly missed by the world of motor sport.
The tragic death of Roger Joice at the Jaguar Drivers Club Meeting at Silverstone has stunned his countless friends in motoring sport and in the County of Norfolk where he lived. Roger, the son of the late well-known Norfolk farmer Jack Joice, farmed 1,700 acres in high Norfolk with meticulous precision in the same way that he restored and raced his Frazer Nash Le Mans replica.
His passion was hill climbing and historic racing in which he campaigned vigorously over the last few years having won the Pomeroy Trophy on two occasions amongst many other awards.
To his family we offer our deepest sympathy.
Sir George White
Sir George White, Bt. who was educated at Harrow and Cambridge, joined the Bristol Aeroplane Company, which his grandfather had founded in 1910, in 1936 and became its General Manager in 1940. He worked for the war effort under Lord Beaverbrook, who was in touch with him at all hours on matters of Blenheim and Beaufighter production, etc. Sir George became an Assistant Managing Director at the time of post-war Bristol Freighter production and when the Bristol Car Company was formed he was its Managing Director and later its sole owner, an interest cut short by a bad road accident in 1969. Sir George White, who in his early days had raced motor-boats very effectively with Sir Roy Fedden, died just before his 70th birthday. The title passes to his son George. — W.B.
