Keith Hall

Keith Hall came from Newcastle and competed regularly from 1953 through to 1955 sometimes as part of the Border Reivers team of Jock McBain. He achieved some good results and a few wins. He used a Cooper throughout, JAP engined for '53 then the Border Reivers Mk VIII for '54. Keith also drove a Cooper-Bristol and competed at Le Mans, sharing a Lotus XI with Cliff Allison in 1956, when they failed to finish after Cliff had a collision with a dog and '57 when they finished 14th overall, the race being won by the Jaguar of Ron Flockhart and Ivor Bueb.
