Paul Emery 3/2/1993, Paul Emery dies.

An innovative and visionary designer and engineer he built and raced cars under the Emeryson banner even participating in the 1956 British Grand Prix with his own car. Many of Paul’s engineering ideas where decades ahead of their time but lack of resources meant that they were never properly realised. 1958 he took part in the Monaco GP for the Connaught stable as team-mate to one Bernie Ecclestone. After running the family firm for a while he was bought out by Hugh Powell and stayed on as employee designing the Scirocco car. He then became an engine tuner, before developing Hillman Imps for racing. Son Peter carried on the car building tradition at Emeryson, when he built Formula Junior racing cars.

Born: 12th of November 1916 in London, UK.
Died: 3rd of February 1993 in Epsom, UK, aged 76.
