Have your say

One of Bourne’s most famous sons has been included in a national biography of people from British motor racing.

Raymond Mays, a racing driver in his own right and founder of racing team British Racing Motors, is included in the latest update to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography which highlights the men and women who shaped British motoring as drivers, racers, designers, inventors, makers and safety campaigners.

The new edition of the dictionary, which was published yesterday, adds an extra 60 biographies of men and women who shaped the history of British motoring.
