It is with great sadness that that I have to tell you that David Downes passed away last Friday 10th.September. Many will know David from his various motoring activities, most recently in his J2. N special and C type. It is intended to put a more comprehensive obituary in the Triple M Bulletin that will be a collaborative effort.

What a shock.We only new him through speed events where he was always friendly and up for a laugh even though we were relative newbies ( 20yrs). Very helpful to Rachael on her early events.

How very sad, as others have observed David was always very friendly and a great enthusiast.

Such sad news indeed. We remember with fondness David competing at many events, especially the old MG Silverstone race meetings.

This is sad news indeed , a great loss. David was a true enthusiast and a great member of the MMM teams running in the VSCC relay races . We have lost a fine gentleman ; indeed a fine , gentle man.

How very sad, he did a lot of racing!
Met him at Montlhery in 2011 and he lent me his helmet, so I could go round the track!!
