As 2019 draws to a close, spare a moment to reflect on lost pals. We lost a few more this past year. It started badly with the loss in January of well known racer and hillclimber Kenny Allen from Crossford, and then came the even more unbelievably sad news of the loss of 22 year old rally driver Stephen McClory.
In March we lost another rally driver Alex Holmes (pink Chevette), and two months later Jimmy Horne from Duns. Also former race and rally driver and rally co-driver Geunda Eadie who won the Ford Faberge Fiesta Championship in 1979. Others who left us included
club stalwarts Len Freshwater (BECC) and Janet Dickson (ADMC) and two Scrutineers, Rob McKinna and Drew Anderson.
October proved to be a dark month too with the passing of Andrew Cowan and although he wasn't one of us, Worcestershire's Russell Brookes who was well known to all Scottish rally followers and a great fan of the International Scottish Rally in its heyday.
