It is with great sadness that the club are to inform you that Jan Pote sadly passed away just over a week ago.
Jan joined the club back in the early 90’s when he started navigating for Phil Cuming , from there he started racing himself in a Range Rover a long with Paul Martin and then with an 88.
Jan was an active member of the club not only competing but behind the scenes with the general running of the club he would help anyone out without a thought!!
Jan along with John parish , Paul Martin and Dave marsh went further afield to compete representing the club at the German National rally.
He was also the comp safari Clerk of Course at the ARC National rally that the club hosted in 2002.
Jan was a larger than life figure within the club always smiling and enjoying the camaraderie, famously describing his rivals as Proper t###s 😁, he was great to be with and around.
Even to the end Jan maintained a positive outlook and his trademark smile .
He will be sadly missed!
Due to the current restrictions there can only be a small presence at the cremation this Friday , however there will be a celebration of Jans life held once circumstances allow. We will keep you informed.
Our thoughts go out to Sue and the rest of his family.
