I'm very saddened to hear of the loss of your father; Bob will be greatly missed by many fellow enthusiasts on this forum.

His technical & electrical knowledge helped many of us in the past and will be truly missed.
I had the pleasure of meeting Bob on several rolling road days and more recently at Duxford. It was always very interesting to chat with Bob over his latest modifications to his much loved ST TDCi.

Thank you on behalf of the forum for taking the time to inform all of his online friends at this difficult time.

Very very sad news! My sincerest condolences go to you and your family at this difficult time James.

You mentioned DuxFORD. Well here's a couple of piccies I took with Bob in them, albeit the 1st one was a candid shot catching a natter off-guard; and the 2nd, the group piccie from the day.

The passing of bob is a great loss to us all... :(

I'm really sadened and sorry to hear this.

I had the pleasure of meeting Bob at a few meets and always enjoyed talking to him. He was the reason I and many other ST drivers brought Roverron boxes after his great results with him.

My thoughts are with you and your family
May he rest in peace

Thank-you for all your very kind comments and pictures. In due course I will show these to my Mum who will take great comfort in them I am sure.

I may have to get the car out next week and give it a wash for him!
