Vice Chancellor Professor Richard Barnett with Dr John CrosslÃ©
As an internationally-respected entrepreneur and engineer, John CrosslÃ©, is to receive the degree of Doctor of Science (DSc) for services to engineering and manufacturing.
The CrosslÃ© Car Company was founded by John and Rosemary CrosslÃ© in 1957 in Holywood, and soon established itself as a manufacturer of high quality racing cars in the expanding motor-sport scene.
John CrosslÃ©'s attention to detail, coupled with good design and sensible strong construction soon led to a rapidly expanding company. In 1987 CrosslÃ© Cars celebrated "30 years of winning", the highlight of which was the return of John CrosslÃ© to the race tracks after a 20 year absence.
