Which manager-turned-team-owner attempted, but failed, to qualify his own car and returned to concentrate on management?  He is still involved in management in Formula 1today.

Hey, NC I hope you don’t mind if I drag this one out a little if anyone is interested in playing along.

Does anyone know

What Team?
What Race?
or What Year?

Bernie was the 6th Beatle. I thought everyone knew that?

I know he bought the Brabham team. As for the rest, I’d just be guessing.

He drove for Connaught, in 1958. However, it was a long time ago that i read the biop.

still can’t find the article, as I’m trying to cheat and post simultaneously. Wrist slapping should follow…
But what I did find it through – eventually – was Wikipedia, I think…

Was that the race in question? It would make sense as Bernie’s local track was Brands Hatch.
Which would mean Jack Fairman – who I don’t know from Adam – raced there on his behalf, after qualifying a stunning 40 seconds slower than the rest.
How does that work??? I have my doubts about this.

Got it! Monaco. He was registered at Brands Hatch as only an alternative driver, but ironically put in better times than he did at Monaco.
Info I found says his lap time was six minutes, but you could get a bicycle round in that time. So I’m still confused. The Bern works in mysterious ways though!

It can’t be the man himself? He was still racing then… I was tempted to type Jack B. but it seemed too crazy to be true.

Think I can close the book on this one.
Stuart Lewis-Evans?
