Neville later appeared in historics for some while. Ran a Volkswagen dealership in Bloemfontein, but is now retired. Lives in Cintsa East, but sadly is in rapidly failing health and is now frail and wheelchair bound. Neville was the 1963 South African Formula 1 champion which followed a brilliant Formula 1 debut the previous year at his home track, where he qualified 10th and finished sixth. However towards the end of 1963, he suffered a massive crash at the Rand 9 Hours meeting and the injuries put him out of his home Grand Prix and much of 1964 as well. After failing to qualify for the 1965 South African Grand Prix, Neville retired to look after his business interests.
