Geoffrey Crossley (born May 11, 1921 in Baslow , Derbyshire , † January 7, 2002 in Oxfordshire ) was an English racing driver .


The British amateur only drove a few local races in a used Riley prior to World War II, and in 1949 bought a Grand Prix model from Geoffrey Taylor's Alta Car and Engineering Company . He contested the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa in 1949 and achieved a remarkable 7th place. The following year he took part in the British Grand Prix of 1950 , the first race in the newly introduced World Automobile Championship . A few weeks later, back in Spa, he contested his second and final Formula 1 world championship round. With a deficit of five laps on the winner Juan Manuel Fangio , he reached 9th place. In addition, he contested some club races at national level with varying success. Since he did not want to bear the costs of motorsport as an amateur, he drew the consequences that same year and said goodbye to Grand Prix racing.
