Phil de Banks

Phil de Banks raced as Aylesbury racing out of a cow shippen near the village of Hardwick. In 1965/66 he ran a yellow (with matt black painted interior) Anglia with 1650 Twin Cam and what I used to think of as enormous sized tyres - mainly in club races at Silverstone - quite successfully. He rented used race tyres by the weekend from an outfit in London. In 1966 he also raced my Group 2 Anglia with 1200 engine at events like the Martini Trophy at Silverstone and the Grand Prix meeting at Brands. I lost touch with him after that.

He previously worked at Alexander Engineering porting heads. He told me that on one occasion some royalty figure was visiting and when he came to Phil said "Ah - so this is where the work is done". I believe he later raced Minis quite successfully - as mentioned on other threads.

I'd love to get in touch with him again. Anyone know where he is now - he'd be well into his 70s - even I am. I heard some years ago that he was running a Guest House or small hotel in a south coast town. The guy who told me this just happened to stay there and was intrigued by the various trophies and a polished crank in the display cabinet - but couldn't remember the name or address. Derek.

Was that his real name - always assumed it was a suda ... pseodo ........ false name.

I remember him well from that period but didn't know him, alas. A very rapid and precise driver if I remember correctly.

Yes - that really was his name - and yes I did try googling several years ago. Tried again last night - even paid for some searches! Someone called Phillip S De Banks, which has to be him, bought a house near Liskeard, Cornwall in 2004 - which might explain my lack of success searching for Guest Houses etc earlier, but it sold again earlier this year and no other link came up. No tel number either. Anyone live near Liskeard who might volunteer to scout around? Of course it could be his estate that sold it this year. Apparently he was born in 1937 (even older then I am!).

Spoke to his brother today - Phil died last September (2009) -RIP.

There is a chance we might be able to access his scrapbooks and maybe post some of the information and pics - who is the best person to evaluate how worthwhile this is and/or where to post it?

Following pic shows Phil leading and winning at Ingleston in April 1966. I don't think that Anglia was ever at his workshop near Aylesbury at that time - maybe he drove for someone else or rented a ride - he had a knack for making things happen.

On show at the Speedshow (Olympia) in January was a “highly ingenious” twin cylinder, twin cam Allen BDA 850, alloy block, single Weber twin choke carb, 11.5:1 CR, over 100 bhp (MN 9-1-75) – raced in 1976 by Peter Day in a Mini
