George Duller

George Duller was a well known jockey before he turned to motor racing in the early twenties. He was a friend of Parry Thomas and drove many cars including a Leyland Thomas, Silver Hawk, Ansaldo, a pre-1914 Sunbeam and a Grand Prix Bugatti. He took records with a Riley and joined the Talbot -Darracq team winning the 1925 Grand Prix at Montlhery.

He took second place in a Darracq in the 1924 Brooklands J.C.C. 200 Miles Race and later partnered Frank Clement in a 4 litre Bentley to win the 1927 Montlhery 24 hour sports car race.

Duller went on to drive Gwenda Stewart's Derby-Maserati and after Whitney Straight had finished with it, acquired the Straight Duesenberg. He had the rear suspension modified, widening in in the quest for stability and better traction on the Brooklands bumps, driving it in collaboration with Elsie Wisdom. He never got the car to go quite as fast as Straight but was nevertheless fairly successful with it.
