Dickie Stoop

b Uckfield (Great Britain), July 30, 1920 – d Croft-on-Tees (Great Britain), May 19, 1968

Flight Lieutenant Richard 'Dickie' Stoop was among the pilots that used the Westhampnett airfield's perimeter track as a race track during their off-hours, tearing round in their MGs. And so the RAF squadron leader was partly responsible for the aerodrome to be converted to Goodwood Motor Circuit.

Later, Stoop became a well-known private sportscar and F2 entrant who raced well into the sixties. He was Carel's partner for the 1960 Le Mans race. They qualified 24th in their RS60 but failed to make it to the finish.

Carel and the people in his presence

This section features the stories about the people who were around him while he was alive – his family, his friends, his mechanics, his entourage, his co-drivers, his rivals.
