This is a monument at Sywell Aerodrome in memory of Paul Morgan who was killed in a flying accident at Sywell.
Paul Morgan was a British engineer who co-founded Ilmor Engineering with Mario Illien in 1983. Ilmor was set up with backing from Roger Penske and achieved its first race win, powering Mario Andretti’s Lola at the Long Beach Grand Prix.
In 1989 Morgan and Illien decided to enter Formula One.
David Coulthard won the Austrian Grand Prix the day after Morgan’s death in a Mercedes-Ilmor powered McLaren. Coulthard refused to participate in the traditional champagne celebration as a mark of respect.”
