Vale Lance McGrath

It is with much sadness that I advise members of the death of BLCC member Lance McGrath.  Lance joined the club in the early 1980’s having much success in Speed Events. He competed in a variety of vehicles, many of which were class winning vehicles and included Holden, Toyota, Mazda and Ford’s.  As well, Lance also competed successfully in rally events prior to his participation with our club. 

Lance was a very active member of the club for someone who actually lived in Canberra.  He volunteered to officiate at many events which included the beer booths run by the club during the Easter and October race meetings and helped with the construction of the dreaded tyre walls that were the chosen safety measure for the Mount Panorama track at that time and were built by volunteers from the club.  Lance had been unwell for several years during which time he continued to participate in club activities, even after moving to Melbourne.

Lance will be sadly missed by his many friends in the club and our deepest sympathies go to Lance’s wife Judith and his family.
