South African racing legend Dave Charlton, who started in 11 F1 grands prix from 1967-1975, died last weekend at the age of 76.
Yorkshire-born Charlton, whose family emigrated to South Africa while he was still a child, was a regular in his home round of the world championship. He took his best finish at Kyalami in 1970, finishing 12th in a Lotus 49C run by respected local squad Scuderia Scribante. A year later he raced a factory-Brabham BT33 in the South African Grand Prix
His sole outing for Team Lotus came in the 1971 British Grand Prix as teammate to Emerson Fittipaldi, one of a number of Formula 1 outings in Europe. After qualifying 13th, his engine expired on the second lap.
