John Fitzpatrick was born on June 9, 1943 in the city of Birmingham, England at the height of World War II.
When his chosen career to be a professional golfer was side tracked due to an accident in which he broke both his wrists, he set out instead on the road to becoming a professional racing driver.
Starting out behind the wheel of a Mini in 1962, he steadily climbed the ladder of the sport over a span of twenty-two years, racing a broad variety of cars. In the process he reached the very pinnacle of the motor racing world.
Retiring from competition at the end of 1983, he continued on for the next three years as a team owner. After moving to Spain and a brief hiatus from the sport, he returned to the England in 1999 where he served as Secretary of the BRDC (British Racing Drivers Club) for seven years.
Now retired, John lives on the south coast of Spain with his wife of many years Sandra, enjoying visits from their children, the sunshine and playing golf as often as possible.
