Born in Hertfordshire, north of London, Terry O’Neil has lived the majority of his life in the West Midlands in England, and before ‘retiring’ to concentrate on his research and writing about motorsport, owned a small business in Stourbridge.
Terry is married, has two daughters and two grandchildren. He had been a member of the Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain for many years and served as a Club Committee member for several years.
Terry has written numerous articles for the Ferrari Club magazine and has contributed articles to Cavallino magazine, Vintage Racecar Journal and the Austin-Healey Club magazine in America. His enthusiasm for researching less well-documented race events led him to write about the Bahamas Speed Weeks, Mid-Atlantic States Racing, Thompson Raceway, North-East American Sports car Racing, and the North American Racing Team. A complete history of the Ferrari 333 SP dealing with those cars used in competition was his tenth book, and following this book on 25 years history of Lime Rock Park, research is already underway into the history of motor racing at the Thompson Speedway oval in Connecticut.
