Terry Drury

I learned today that Terry Drury passed away last night.
Many people will have known, or known of Terry, it is a cliché, but he was certainly one of British motorsports characters.
I only got to know him slightly in the late 1980's, but learned later of some of his earlier exploits. Saloon/Touring car builder/racer, GT40 racer and of course creator of the original (and amazing) Ford Transit Supervan that amongst others, Chris Craft would wow the crowds with his demonstration runs.
I don't know Terry's family or his many, many friends, but I bet everyone who knew or even briefly met him will have a TD story, and when they tell it will have a smile on their face!
Thanks for the memories Terry, Rest In Peace.

I know about him and the team from watching the 80s BTCC races, either through reviews or just online. I did like the Alfas and the Sierras

Sad news.

He lived in deepest Essex and IIRC was the man behind Richard Hutton's Escort Cosworth engines - among many others of course.
