Raymond L Cordes – race car driver

M/Sgt Raymond L Cordes (aka Rock n’Roll Cordes) was based at Burtonwood in 1956 and a race car driver.  He raced at the Oulton Park circuit, Cheshire in a Plymouth in the Manchester Motor Traders Luncheon Club trophy race for saloon cars.  We know he entertained he crowd with his rather unwieldy beast until the wheel studs sheared!  Mike Allen has written a book about the Tourist Trophy races at Oulton Park and is trying to find out more about the drivers.  We only have a record that he was to enter the race in August 1956 but have no idea of the outcome or any other information about him.  Does anyone out there know of him or have any information to help Mike?
