The World Championship drivers — Where are they now?
by Richard Jenkins
I have endeavoured to try and provide as up-to-date and accurate information as possible for everyone featured on this site, and I am always indebted to the many contributors who help with the information on this site and sadly, space doesn't allow for me to thank everyone here. However, I would like to dedicate the ongoing work, progress and achievements on this site to those contributors who are sadly no longer with us but helped aide this project so much: Len Calinoff, Phil Harms, Gene Heeter, Earl Ma, Don Radbruch, Roscoe H Rann and Barry Lake.
Updates and corrections are always welcomed — please either join the debate here or feel free to contact me on with any information you might have.
This part of the site is also dedicated to the memory of Tony Marsh, as it was his post-Grand Prix life that served as the initial inspiration for "Where Are They Now" back in 1998 For more about what this part of the site is trying to achieve, please read my full introduction.

|Chris Irwin||27 Jun 1942
|A massive crash in 1968 led to him suffering injuries from which he has never made a truly full recovery. Among the permament consequences of the crash are scars and epilepsy. He turned his back on the sport and went off to new experiences and made the most of life - he enjoyed flying and lived on a yacht on the coast of Southern France. However in recent years, he has drifted back towards the sport and in 2008, he made a surprise, but very welcome, return to the tracks for the first time in 40 years, when he visited the Thruxton circuit for the track's 40th anniversary celebrations. Now re-married, he lives in Rutland, where he still follows the sport, watching it on the TV. (Last updated 11 Nov 2012)|
