A major during World War Two, his influence was huge on the sport, as he created affordable, decent cars for a range of people. Raced in trials and then sprints, often in his own Austin Seven, prior to World War Two, and then helped build a range of trial cars for the sheer pleasure of it, rather than worrying about making huge amounts of money from it. Remained linked to the sport until his death. Mallock, who died after a short illness, was also an accomplished skiier. Despite his business growing, Mallock continued to race where he could, with his last race coming in a historic event in the US in 1990 in a MK2 Formula Junior car that he had raced in the category in 1960. Only eight days before his death, as he was involved with the design of the Mk31, he attended testing at Mallory Park.
