Hayes, Walter (GB)

b 12/4/1924 (Harrow) - d 26/12/2000


Starting out as a journalist on the Daily Mail, he worked up through sub-editor and associate editor, before becoming editor of the Sunday Despatch. However, in the 1960s Ford was having an image problem, and when Ford boss Sir Patrick Hennessy discussed this with his friend (and Daily Mail/Sunday Despatch owner) Lord Beaverbrook, Hayes was recommended as the director of public affairs for Ford.

He joined in 1962, and together with Colin Chapman came up with the Lotus Cortina, which transformed the image of the car. When Coventry Climax withdrew from racing, Chapman discussed with Hayes his engine problem, and Hayes immediately realised the value of getting Ford's name into F1. In a Ford policy committee meeting, he waited until the "Any Other Business" section and requested £100,000 for Cosworth Engineering to develop a new engine. A new era was born.

He also was involved in Ford's rallying and sportscar campaigns, and when Ford USA decided to withdraw from racing, he sold the GT40's and the team to John Wyer and John Willment, ensuring that Ford continued to win. Hayes eventually became vice-president of Ford, and gained a CBE for services to motorsport in 1989, upon which he retired. However, when Ford bought Aston Martin, Hayes was bought out of retirement to become chairman of the new company. Once Aston Martin was in good shape, he retired again, but he was still life president of Aston Martin, governor of the University of Michigan Library, chairman of the Churches Conservation Trust, and a trustee of the Grand Prix Mechanics Trust. He sadly died of Lung Cancer on Boxing Day, 2000.

Hellé-Nice, Madame

b 1900 - d 1984


Hélène Delange was an acrobat and dancer whose stagename was Hellé-Nice, having had star billing at the Casino de Paris in the Gala Maurice Chevalier, and she started racing in 1928, winning the Grand Prix Féminin at Montlhéry in an Omega Six, beating the likes of Estelle Lang and Anne Itier. Ettore Bugatti then loaned her a Type 35T for a speed record run where she averaged 198 kph before an accident. She was due to take part in the GP of Casablanca, but withdrew after her friend Count "Bruni" d'Harcourt had a fatal accident.

She finished 3rd in the GP Bugatti at Le Mans, and was hired by the Williams Morris Agency to do a tour of America. She took part in a record run at the New Jersey Woodbridge oval, driving a Ford, but crashed and rolled after three laps. Nice was uninjured and crawled out of the wreckage, waving to the crowd. She came back to Europe and competed regularly in the Bugatti, collecting start money in 1932, and took the ladies hillclimb record at Mont Ventoux.

In 1933 she purchased an Alfa Romeo Monza, finishing 9th in the Italian GP where Campari, Borzacchini and Czaykowski were all killed in an accident, and subsequently took part in the Pescara 24 Hours. In 1936 she won the Coupe de Dames on the Monte Carlo Rally driving a Ford V8, but a trip to South America driving the Alfa went horribly wrong. Driving in the Grand Prix de São Paulo, Nice lost control when avoiding an excited official and was thrown from the car. Nice was in a coma for three days from which she recovered, but the run-away car killed six spectators. She never raced seriously again.

In 1937 she joined an all-female record breaking team at Montlhéry, and the following year SS member Huschke von Hanstein tempted her to drive a DKW on the Rallye de Chamonix. Because of this association, Nice was accused of Nazi sympathies after the war, and she went to court to clear her name.

She returned to rallying in 1950, teaming up with Anne Itier to drive a Renault 4CV on the Monte Carlo Rally. However, they had an ignominous early exit when at the Amsterdam start she skidded on black ice and fell in a canal. Her last race was the 1951 GP de Nice, where she again drove a Renault 4CV. Unfortunately her place in the team was taken by a young Jean Behra.

Henry, Ernest (CH)

b - d 


When Cesare Giuppone was killed racing for Peugeot, works drivers Georges Boillot, Jules Goux and Paul Zuccarelli hatched a plan to design a new high performance engine, and persuaded Robert Peugeot to let them design whatever they wished. They took on Swiss draughtsman and designer Ernest Henry, who had worked with Zuccarelli at Hispano Suiza. This outraged the established Peugeot designers, who called the three drivers The Charlatans. However, Henry came up with the new idea of the Double-Overhead Camshaft engine, and it won first time out in the 1912 Grand Prix de l'ACF.
