Tom PryceF1 Racing driver.
Connection: From Rhuthun, North Wales.
Came from Rhuthun, North Wales. A Welsh speaker and winner of the British Grand Prix. Sadly killed in crash.
Tom Pryce competed in forty-two Grand Prix between 1974 and 1977 and won the 'Race of Champions' with the Shadow team at Brands Hatch in 1975. He was killed in a tragic accident at the 1977 South African Grand Prix.
He used to have the Welsh flag as his helmet design. Great, great man and tragic end to his life.
Very fond memories of Maldwyn (Tom). I used to work with him in North Wales engineers St Asaph and give him a lift to work many times. He was the most genuine and likeable person you could meet. We had alot of laughs together and i often think of him. Really nice to hear the comments said of him.
I am a member of the Tom Pryce memorial fund and we are working to see tom honored in his hometown of Rhuthin in North Wales. We have raised £4400 towards a lasting memorial in Upper Clwyd Street in Rhuthin but are still rather short of our intended target of over £10000. I have just commissioned a painting of Tom Pryce and intend making copies/prints to sell to raise more funds.
