Grands Prix:

0 (1959)

Phil was an enthusiast and amateur who entered the 1959 US Grand Prix in his Maserati 250F, with a good background in SCCA racing.However, Cade actually qualified, but his car's engine expired and he therefore couldn't start the race. Cade was a Maserati fan who also raced a former Etancelin V8RI in America from 1951 to 1959, with a notable win at the Seneca Cup at Watkins Glen in 1958. Cade continued racing his 250F (ex-Jo Bonnier) competitively until 1962 when he was hurt in a crash. For 1963 he dusted off his old V8RI but by then this car was by no means competitive anymore. Cade did race a Lotus 18 in 63-64 and won an event in the Lotus at Thompson raceway in 1964. In the 1990's he even appeared at a historic racing meeting or two, again racing the V8RI, which he kept for the rest of his life.
