RIP TERRY COLLIER
It is with sadness that we advise that one of our Life Members, Terry Collier, passed away this Easter Monday morning.
Some of you will know that Terry has been battling cancer for several years now and was admitted to Wellington Hospital a few weeks ago.
Terry has been a Club member for many years and during that time has held a number of positions within the Club including President and Chairperson/Treasurer of the Classic Race Committee.
For years Terry raced at both our November Classic Race meetings and Charity Classic Race meetings, initially in his lovely MGBGT, then in several Midgets and latterly in his fabulous Formula Junior which he imported from the USA a number of years back. The Formula Junior required major restoration and Terry was assisted by his brother and nephew in the rebuilding of this car.
Terry's knowledge of racing cars and drivers who raced at the Levin Motor racing circuit is legendary. He was a former Chairperson and member of NZ Motorsport's Classic Race Commission for a number of years.
His first car was an MGA hardtop coupé which is still owned by Club members who are retired and living in Carterton. In more recent years he owned a very nice 2003 MGTF and only last year purchased an MGZR which he has been tidying up as and when his health permitted.
Terry is survived by his wife Anne, and their son, Simon and his family who live in Auckland.
