about Duncan Hamilton

James Duncan Hamilton (30 April 1920 in Cork, County Cork, Ireland – 13 May 1994 in Sherborne, Dorset, England). His colourful and extrovert personality often overshadowed his genuine talent. After fighting in, and surviving the Second World War, he vowed to live life to the full and took up motor sport. Although adept in single-seaters, sportscars was where he enjoyed most success, winning the 1953 24 Heures du Mans, two Coupe de Paris events, and the 12 heures internationals Reims race in 1956. After he retired in 1958, Duncan ran a garage in Byfleet, Surrey for many years, until his death in 1994, after losing his battle against lung cancer.
