Roger J Reed

It is with deep sadness that we have to tell you that Roger Reed died earlier today in hospital in Aberdeen, after being diagnosed with lung cancer last year.

We knew Roger for his contribution to motor sport in Scotland for more than 40 years -  as a competitor and organiser, and MSA Steward, and for 26 years as the Chairman of the East of Scotland Association of Car Clubs then the Scottish Association of Car Clubs.  Roger also served on the MSA Regional Committee, and 19 years on the Off-Road Committee.

This left the problem of what to do with all his spare time, so he also sang in a choir and volunteered to run enterprise classes for  high school pupils. 

Roger will be sadly missed by his wife Pat, and by a host of friends all over the country.
