It comes from the family of Adelaide-born Colonel Arthur Waite (1894-1991) who married Irene Austin, the daughter of Herbert Austin (Austin Motor Company).

Col Waite, who had served at Gallipoli, won motor-racing events at Brooklands and Monza. In Australia his Austin 7 completed the 100-mile road race which then became the 1928 Australian Grand Prix, which Waite also won.
