Mike Taylor (2015)

Michael Taylor is a former racing driver from Great Britain. He participated in 2 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on July 18, 1959. He scored no championship points. He also participated in several non-Championship Formula One races. His racing career effectively ended when his steering column weld failed on his Lotus 18 in the 1960 Belgian Grand Prix at 160 mph. He was thrown from the car, cutting down a tree with his body and broke several bones. He was paralysed, but due to therapy he is now on his feet. Because of his car failure Taylor later sued Lotus successfully, one of the few successful actions against the makers of a racing car. Taylor never raced again after his accident at Spa Francorchamps but turned instead to property speculation.
