Still competes, albeit rarely, in the odd historic festival. Now lives in Gloucestershire, where he runs a poster business. His finest moment was winning the 1974 Formula 5000 title and this led to a deserved Formula One debut a year later. Started racing in 1967, but lack of funds were always an issue. Performed well in the Aurora F1 series, but it didn't led to a Grand Prix comeback and Bob continued racing sportscars until 1986.
