Biography

Tony Nash, a director of the family engineering firm, was one of the key figures in the technical developments behind the resurgence of British bobsledding in the 1960’s. He was also a brilliant driver, and with Robin Dixon as his brakeman, they won the Olympic title in 1964 and the world title in 1964 and 1965. Nash and Dixon were such as outstanding partnership that their names are seldom mentioned separately and 25 years later no British pair has come close to matching their achievements. Both were awarded the MBE to mark their Olympic victory.
