The new film Ford v. Ferrari features British driver Ken Miles prominently. We dug into our
archives to get a better picture of the man.

The new the film Ford v. Ferrari, focuses on British driver Ken Miles, an unsung motorsports hero. In honor of Miles,
we're republishing James T. Crow's obituary of the driver from the November, 1966 issue of Road & Track. -Ed.


The death of Ken Miles has created an unique sort of void in the lives of an uncommonly large number of people. Personally
I have known no other driver whose death has touched so many people in some private, special sort of way.

Ken was killed at Riverside Raceway on Aug. 17 while testing one of the Ford J-car prototypes. The testing program that was
being carried out was to determine whether the J-car was suited for participation in this fall’s Canadian-American Championship
series. A series of trouble-free laps had been made before the accident and on the final lap there was nothing to indicate anything
wrong as the car came down the backstretch at about 175 mph.
