Lloyd's insurance broker who ran into trouble with British and international law over his pornographic and paedophile links. Moved to Thailand to escape trial, but suffered from ill-health for a long while before dying of AIDS in Thailand. This pretty much overshadows his, in truth, relatively modest and short racing career, which was spent largely in sportscars in national and club events between 1951 and 1955. Riseley-Prichard did do quite well, however in Formula Libre, which helped him to a drive at the 1954 British Grand Prix.
