All,

Last night, during our AGM GTROC dinner, we were recipients to some tragic news.

As most of you will no doubt have already heard, two of our forum members were involved in an accident that took the lives of two people.

From what we've understood and news reports we've read, Harry (Lamb) was driving a car in which Rob was a passenger. In circumstances as yet unknown, a head on collision with another oncoming car (Vauxhall Corsa) tragically took the life of the female driver of the Corsa, together with that of Rob's.

Harry is currently in hospital in a serious, but stable, condition.

From BBC news reports, there are allegedly 4 cars involved, the situation regarding the others is as yet unknown.

We closed the forum simply to stem the growth of any speculation as a result of the many unknown facts at the time. To respect the families and those close to the deceased, we felt it necessary to obtain all facts before reopening this forum.

As these facts are now emerging, we must stress that any continued speculation relating to this incident will be deleted immediately. As is natural with all such incidents, a formal police investigation is no doubt underway - your sensitivity and discretion is called upon. We must also respect that this is a difficult and trying time for the families and friends of those concerned - no doubt they are also privy to any information posted here.

Meanwhile, on behalf of the GTR Register and the GTR Owners Club, we'd like to pass on our sincere condolences to the family of both the 38 year old woman and our respected forum member, Rob.

We also wish a speedy recovery to Lamb and any others that were closely involved.

To finish off, please contact me via PM with any factual information that may assist us in understanding the unfolding of events so we may ensure a true understanding of the incident.

I will update this thread as I learn more. I am sure John Fuggles will also make a public statement on this when he arrives home from the AGM.

Kind Regards and Best Wishes,

the loss of Rob is very upsetting

ive spoken to Rob a few times especially over the last month regarding a project, and i must say what a helpful individual he was

i am sure he has gone to a better place, and my condolences go out to his family and sincere friends

i was deeply shocked and upset by this news even though i had only spoken to rob and not met the genius

i hope Harry has a speedy recovery and everything works out for him and his family

i am sure Justin is in severe shock as are those that were much closer to Rob than i was

i hope everythings works out for the best and its a shame we never got the project going

RIP Rob

and get well soon Harry

Cem,

Sorry I had to call you last night at the AGM and break the tragic news I'd heard from Mick.

R.I.P Rob.... Very, very sad indeed, and best wishes go out to Harry who I hope recovers as quickly as possible.

My thoughts during this testing time go out to the families and loved ones of both Rob and the lady who sadly are no longer.

May they rest in peace..
