A pretty respectable driver  who, after trying his hand at F3, switched to saloon cars racing in Renaults in the 70s before graduating to the European Touring Car Championships. 

His wife left him for Sir Frank Williams. Charles used to keep his MV Augusta in the living room which might have given his wife some cause to move.
