Formula 1 Wiki

Dave Morgan (born 7 August 1944 and died 6 November 2018) was a British racing driver and engineer. He raced in a variety of formula series, including briefly in Formula One for the 1975 British Grand Prix. He was also an engineer to Eric van de Poele in both Formula One and Formula 3000.

Morgan began racing a Mini in the mid-1960s, eventually graduating to Formula Three. At the end of 1970, he received a 12-month ban for dangerous driving after colliding with James Hunt in the last corner of the Crystal Palace circuit. Despite the ban, he progressed to the Formula Atlantic series for 1971. After two years in Formula Two, he returned to Formula Atlantic in 1974.

In 1975, he was given the opportunity to race alongside Surtees driver John Watson at the British Grand Prix. He had an accident on lap 50 out of 56, but was still classified in 18th place, having finished enough of the race distance.

After his Formula One debut, he retired from motorsport, only to return in 1980 to race in the British Saloon Car Championship driving a Mitsubishi Colt Lancer. He retired at the end of the 1981 season.
