It is with sadness that Four Lane Black Top has to report the untimely passing of another of its regular racers, Steve Grant, who died peacefully this morning following a short spell in hospital. Steve was a very keen follower of motor sport, particularly F1, having travelled in the last few years to a number of Grand Prix around the world. He had been a regular attendee at club meetings for over five years and could always be relied upon to get his hands dirty wherever he was able, as well as putting himself out for others when needed. His feisty race night battles with his compatriots will not be forgotten in a hurry and Steve was rarely lost for words when it came to banter! Club members’ thoughts are with his wife Gaynor and all of Steve’s family at this particularly difficult time
Four Lane Blacktop has lost one of its leading lights.
After a short but intense battle, Rob Lees lost his fight against cancer on Wednesday 7 October 2020. He will be remembered for many things and amongst them will be his long-term commitment to slot car racing, not only within the UK but across the world, whatever the style or scale – he knew no bounds. There are one or two FLBT club members who can go back nearly thirty years to when they first met ‘Rocky’ when even then he seemed an old hand at the hobby!
Over the years he also put in great efforts to develop and nurture the hobby, including taking on the role of Chairman of BSCRA for a number of years, then latterly Chairman of the FLBT Club, which has steadily evolved to provide a truly diverse variety of slot racing classes, along with a steadily growing and healthy membership. His will be very big boots to fill.
FLBT Club members’ thoughts go out to Rob’s family at this sad time
