Rolt was an Army officer during WWII in the rifle brigade. He was captured at Calais in 1940 and escaped seven times before eventually being sent to Castle Colditz.
He was one of the masterminds behind the famous plan to build an escape glider, but the prison was liberated before the aircraft was completed.
Tony was the last remaining survivor from the first world championship Grand Prix, the British GP 1950. He was also the last remaining member of the British Racing Drivers' Club to have been elected before the war.
After the war, he was a part of Dixon Rolt Developments, which, among other projects, developed four-wheel drive systems, built the Jensen FF road car 1966, the Ferguson P99 which became the only four-wheel drive car to win an F1 race, driven by Stirling Moss at the Oulton Park Gold Cup in 1961.
