Had retired from driving sportscars and went on to run his own business. However, he returned to full-time racing in 2002 in the All-Japan GT series, with his own team, and raced on for a few years, but is now retired from racing again. Lees was an excellent all-round driver who sadly never had the finances to really move up the ladder. His finest achievement was arguably winning a trio of Formula Ford titles in 1975, which was after a long apprenticeship in the discipline.
