Mo­tor­sport lost a true friend and loyal sup­porter last week when Roger Reed lost his fight with lung can­cer.

Best known as an MSA stew­ard on many events through­out the UK, he was also chair­man of the Scot­tish As­so­ci­a­tion of Car Clubs for the past six years and, prior to that, chair­man of the East As­so­ci­a­tion of Car Clubs for 20 years. He also served for 21 years on MSA Re­gional Com­mit­tees.

Roger was in­tro­duced to the sport while study­ing Elec­tri­cal and Elec­tron­ics Engi­neer­ing at Bris­tol Col­lege of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy, and was a founder mem­ber of Bath Mo­tor Club in 1963. Af­ter col­lege he moved to Scot­land to take up a post with the Scot­tish Hy­dro Elec­tric Board and joined Aberdeen DMC and later Stone­haven DMC, com­pet­ing in nav­i­ga­tional ral­lies through­out the 1970s.

Roger will be sorely missed by his wife Pat, their wider fam­ily and friends through­out all branches of mo­tor­sport.
