about John James

John James (10 May 1914 – 27 January 2002) was a British racing driver from England who was born in Packwood, Warwickshire and died in St. Julian's, Malta. He competed in one Formula One World Championship Grand Prix. James was an engineer who acquired a Maserati 4CLT/48, and entered the 1951 British Grand Prix, retiring from a damaged radiator after 23 laps. Regulation changes for 1952 limited his Maserati to competing in Formula Libre only, and he competed in several sprint races before retiring from racing.
