A few more words from Dave, his son and also a TVR Racer:"It is with greatest sadness that I'm writing to let you all know that Dad passed away today, 22 November 2010 at around 8.45am. He passed at home with Mam, sister and me by his side as peacefully as it could be - 30 years on from the day he and Mam got engaged."
"Dad was a true larger than life character, always smiling and always making jokes. A truly awesome driver winning in every form of motorsport he entered - BRISCA F2 Stockcars, MG's in varios guises in the BCV8 championship and finally in the TVRs; he was an equally awesome Dad (the best anyone could have wished for) to Jill and me, and husband to Julie."
"I hope I gave him a good send off to the chapel of rest - garage doors half open with the racer and Chimaera at half revs as he was placed in the back of the car and drove away - truly hope he looked down on that with a smile!!"
"I will pass on details of the funeral once arranged, and we would like as many people who had the pleasure of knowing him to attend as possible!"
