Hi all. I just heard of the passing of Jock. Many of the BRDC cognoscenti will have known him well and the tragedy of his passing. There truly aren't many true characters like this left. Here's a short obituary that I've found on the net. Please, please, please share any stories you have about him, I'm sure there are many and join me in wishing his family the best.

Jock started his motorsport career as a marshal actually and then gradually wormed his way into the favours of various motorsport teams. It was actually a brief career that was blighted by an accident (with some rope, a petrol can and a student nurse of all things) at his beloved Silverstone in '59 and which caused a premature end to any further competitive pursuits. His mission then became to look after his beloved circuit, culminating in seeing the recent 17 year deal coming to fruition. He loved that.

He will be missed by all whom he touched.
