Born in 1911 Alfred Fane Peers Agebag, would use his middle name as his surname for his racing career. Fane started his racing career in the early 1930s, racing and winning at Brooklands in 1931. The next year he bought his first Frazer Nash, and went on to win a number of class victories in British hillclimbs.
Such was Fane’s like of the Frazer Nash he would become a shareholder in the holding company in 1935, going on to set a new hill record at Shelsley Walsh before racing in Grands Prix and at Le Mans for the company.
Deemed too old to become a fighter pilot in the Second World War, Fane would flew reconnaissance planes with the RAF Photo Reconnaissance Unit. He lost his life in bad weather returning to the UK just short of his 100th hour of flight time.
