Part of his leg was amputated after a Can-Am accident whilst at the peak of his career - which in turn, made him very reluctant as a result to talk about motorsport. South did particularly well in Formula 3 and Formula 2 so the sudden end to his career was a real shame for the sport as well as tragic for Stephen. However despite his bad experience, in recent years, he has appeared as a spectator at a few historic events. Lives in Buckinghamshire, where is believed to be running the family engineering company.
