Biography

Ted Whiteaway was a West London export merchant who raced as a hobby. He made up the numbers in British racing during 1954 with an HWM-Alta – finishing eighth in a heat for the International Trophy at Silverstone but anonymous thereafter.

He ventured abroad in 1955 – racing in Naples before entering the Monaco Grand Prix. His practice time in the principality (1min 57.2sec) was a full eight seconds too slow to qualify for the race.

Whiteaway started the Le Mans 24 Hours for the only time in 1959 when sharing an AC-Bristol with John Turner. The Rudd Racing-entered car finished seventh overall to win the 2-litre class on Whiteaway’s final international appearance.
