Dickie Stanford's motorsport career began working on Formula Fords, after he left school. As a result of this he progressed on to becoming a full time mechanic working on Formula Ford and FF2000. He would move next to the Sports 2000 category where he was mechanic to James Weaver.

He would then move into Formula Three working for Tiga. This was followed by two years working for Ralt in their Formula Two team, when Jonathan Palmer and Mike Thackwell were driving.

In his role as WilliamsF1 Team Manager, he has the overall responsibility for the Race Team whether at the factory or on circuit.
