Eugene Hall

Eugene was American, his first recorded finish was towards the end in 1954 in a JAP engined Kieft but he quickly moved to a modified Cooper  Mk VI Norton and continued until 1957, switching again at some point to a Mk VIII and finally a Mk IX. At various times he joined Stanley Marks and entered as Hallmark

On his day, he could achieve a good finish, the most notable being a 2nd to Stuart Lewis-Evans in the Earl of March Trophy at Goodwood in April 1957. Thereafter, Eugene moved to a Lotus sports car and Formula Junior.

Eugene passed away in March 2015
