Very much a countryman at heart Allison was not one of the party-going racing drivers but a driver with a huge ambition to race in Formula 1.

He and Graham Hill competed in the first grand prix race for Colin Chapmans Lotus team in 1958 and scored the first world championship points for Lotus. He later joined Ferrari and won the Argentine 1000kms sports car race with American co-driver Phil Hill as well as being a member of the Ferrari grand prix team in 1959 and 1960. Cliff Allison can also claim victories in many sports car events including winning the Index of Performance at Le Mans in 1957 with a 750cc Lotus Eleven-Climax.

His racing career came to an end following an accident in the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa in 1961 driving a UDT-Laystall Cooper-Climax.
