Died after a long battle with ill-health. Retired, in his 80's, from building and restoring cars in his workshop near Johannesburg. Serrurier built nearly fifteen Formula 1 chassis bearing his name, initially basing his design on a Cooper T51 he raced. Doug started racing bikes in speedway events, and then on grass tracks before taking up car racing in 1956. Serrurier became a respected competitor and entrant in South African F1 racing, winning twice - once at Grand Central in 1961 and then at Westmead in 1962. Serrurier stopped racing in the early 1970's to concentrate fully on his workshop.
