(3 Aug 1949 - 15 Feb 2022)
Bob will be remembered by every rally crew as the chap who thrust a microphone in front of you at the end of an event, ready to hear your stories from the day's competition and
broadcasting to the assembled spectators. He also commentated on stage rallies at Oulton Park and hillclimbs at Barbon, broadcasting a wealth of information about every competitor.
Living in south Cumbria but originally from Cheshire, Bob was a regular road rally navigator in the 1970s and also competed on car trials in a Hillman Imp and later Clan Crusader.
In the 1980's and 1990's he could often be found co-driving on stage rallies, and his successes included a couple of wins on a Darrian, he also competed in a TR7 V8 and a Westfield on stage events.
He was also a regular race marshal at Oulton Park, and a MSA Steward at events across the northern half of the UK.
Bob was an architect by profession, and this proved very useful when time cards and road books were needed. A VW Scirocco fanatic, he had numerous cars of this model, travelling the
length and breadth of the country to add another to his collection. At one time he had three in various states of mobility until his garage collapsed on one of them!
Bob was dedicated to motorsport. He knew all the competitors from the north of Scotland to the depth of Wales and was able to extract a comment from them all on the start or finish ramp.
He was an official of Stockport Motor Club until his move northwards, where he became an official of Kirkby Lonsdale Motor Club and secretary of their stage rallies.
As Chairman of ANWCC he regularly attended the Regional Committee meetings of Motorsport UK, forthright in his views and always willing to discuss all aspects of motor sport with
the ANWCC officials.
At the 2022 AGM (8th February) of the Association Bob stood down to make way for a younger person, having passed on much of his knowledge and wisdom to his successor.
The funeral took place at Fishwicks Beetham Hall Crematorium at 2pm on Tuesday March 22nd. The Funeral Director has set up an online tribute page which will allow you to leave
