We regret to have to record that “Tim” Rose-Richards, R.N.V.R., has been killed flying on active service. Rose-Richards was a wealthy stockbroker who achieved considerable prominence in racing, at the wheel of Bugatti, Talbot, Aston-Martin and Alfa-Romeo cars. He competed in B.A.R.C. meetings ten years ago and later did some serious racing, his successes numbering third place at Le Mans with Sanders-Davis in 1931, third again at Le Mans with the Hon. Brian Lewis in 1932, in both instances with a Talbot, and the same showing yet again in 1933. He was second in the 1933 Mannin Moar in a “2.3” Bugatti and third in the T.T. of that year with an Alfa-Romeo. He drove Bugatti, Talbot and Alfa-Romeo cars in many classic events in 1934, and in 1935 was third at the Eifel meeting with an E.R.A. He also partnered John Cobb in the Napier-Railton, both when it won the 500 Mile Race at 121.38 m.p.h. and when it took records at Bonneville Flats. “Tim” Rose-Richards raced in a big way for the fun of the thing, and anyone who will do that merits our warm respect.
