Dick Protheroe 1922 - 1966
This page features the race
meetings and some of the trophies won during the period 1947 to 1966.
As can be seen from other pages on this site he raced various Jaguar XK 120's and "E" types under the registration plates CUT 6 and CUT 7. Athough he owned CUT 8 "E" type and the car was newly built ready to race he never competed in that car due to his death at Oulton Park in a Ferrari in 1966. The race meetings attended included Silverstone, Goodwood, Snetterton, Aintree and Brands Hatch to name a few and competed in the Autosport Championship.
These are some of the trophies won.
Below are two original artworks of CUT 7 commissioned by Rosemary Protheroe with the artist Dion Pears.
