He raced a Cooper Mk V though 1951 but may have upgraded to a Mk VI for '52. For 1952 he teamed up with Allan Moore and Maurice Lambert to form Ecurie Balai. Although they used different cars they pooled resources to build Triumph engines. Balai is French for broomstick, a reference to Moore's Broomstick Garage in Dunstable.
