Rally re­cov­ery ex­pert Mark Burn­dred sadly passed ear­lier this month.

Mark crewed the ‘Dif­flock 8’ re­cov­ery truck and he reg­u­larly pro­vided his ser­vices to stage ral­lies across the UK as well as the Bri­tish Cross Coun­try Cham­pi­onship.

The truck was named Katy after the nick­name of Kaz Jenk­ins, who was re­cov­ered by it on mul­ti­ple oc­ca­sions after rally re­tire­ments.

De­spite usu­ally meet­ing crews just after they’d put their car in the trees or bro­ken some­thing ex­pen­sive, Mark was a very pop­u­lar fig­ure in mo­tor­sport. BCCC team In­san­ity Rac­ing summed him up: “Mark wasn’t just Dif­flock 8. He wasn’t just re­cov­ery. He was one of our com­mu­nity and, more so, we counted him as a friend. He will be missed.”
