Friday 1st March 1918
Born on this day, Major Arthur Mallock, founder of the RML Group, a motorsports racing team and engineering company. He made high speed, low cost motor racing accessible to the ordinary man in the street. For more than 30 years his cars were a mainstay of British motor racing. With a combination of engineering genius and design simplicity, his cars were winners from the first Mk1 built in 1958 through to the Mk30PR of 1993.
