  • ANDREW FERGUSON
    Through the 1960s-70s, Andrew Ferguson was one of the best known behind-the-scenes personalities within Formula 1. He was the founding first secretary of the Formula 1 Constructors’ Association, and when he relinquished that position in 1973 Mr Bernie Ecclestone became its new leader. The always immaculate, genial, hugely entertaining Andrew Ferguson had, by his own account, worked for the Allard Car Company, then as a Daisy-Fresh cake salesman, and a “dog-meat man” before joining the Cooper Car Company as youthful assistant manager of its racing drivers’ school at Brands Hatch circuit. He quickly became Cooper’s racing team administrator, responsible for entries, bookings, travel etc, 1959-1960. He adored his time at Cooper, saying “there was never a day when I didn’t go home with a tale to tell, ribs aching with laughter”. In 1961 he joined American racing team patron ‘Lucky’ Casner’s Camoradi Racing Team, and in 1962 moved to Team Lotus, to work with Colin Chapman and Jim Clark. He would coordinate all Lotus’s Formula 1, 2, sports and Indianapolis activities for the rest of the 1960s before joining Steve McQueen’s Solar Productions as a consultant during the making of the movie ‘Le Mans’. During this period he co-managed the Steve McQueen/Peter Revson Porsche 908 entry in the 1970 Sebring 12-Hours – which brought them a fantastic second place overall. In 1974 he helped set-up the Vel’s Parnelli Jones Formula 1 tam with driver Mario Andretti. He later rejoined Team Lotus and ran the Club Lotus supporters’ organisation. Andrew Ferguson was immensely popular, and the motor racing world deeply mourned his early death following a sudden stroke.
