Pat Prosser

Pat Prosser joined forces with Comish Hunter to buy Cooper Mk IIs in 1948 but when his fellow Scots adopted JPs, Pat stayed faithful to Surbiton, acquiring a Mk V for 1951. Pat became Cooper's agents for Scotland for a while. Like many of his fellows he largely competed in Scotland only making the occasional foray south for Brough or a major Silverstone meeting.
