Son of the late actor, Sir Bernard Miles, John was a chassis development engineer for many years, most notably with Lotus F1, after he retired from racing in 1972. A technical journalist, he has been a consultant for Multimatic, a motorsports components and systems supply company. He also is involved in a record company, but keeps many links to the sport and is a regular visitor to historic events after overcoming a brief spell of illness.
