RIP Alan Blundell
We are very sad to report that our club member Alan Blundell died unexpectedly on Wednesday 27th January. Alan had the lovely SS Jaguar Old No. 8 Replica which he built some years ago. He has raced at our November Classic a couple of times and in 2020 at our January Drivers' Training Day Bill Denize reports that he was lucky enough to go out with Alan in the SS for a few circuits around the Manfeild track. It was a beautifully built car and he had a number of Jags in his collection of cars. Several years ago the OSH Group enjoyed a very pleasant few hours over drinks and a BBQ at Alan and Marie's lovely home (since sold) they had on the hills above Waikanae where they had extensive workshop facilities for all his car projects. Alan was a very clever engineer. He will be much missed on club events.
