    Not someone who made many friends, or particularly cared if he did. But he certainly made an impact on our sport, transforming it from an amateur pastime to a professional business. RIP.

    Wonder if the New Era first round draft pick on club race dates will ease now he has passed on ............. As TC said, did a lot for the sport and in particular his own club but some of his methods and motives upset a lot on the way.

    My condolences to his family

    Had some arguements with him (which you could never win) but still spent plenty of good years racing with New Era.

    I thought he was ok.

    very New Era, and how that worked being in the ACU against other clubs i dont know but helped me out several times.

    I had a long chat with him about the new TT license we had to get that year. Basically he said that they, the ACU had to be seen to be doing something as there had been several deaths but nothing really had been done paperwork wise .
    He admitted that whilst it wasn't the best and the answer to everything it was a step forward and helped in some ways. He had a point.
