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.
All events cancelled until the end of June 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak

Sadly on the 12th November Trish peacefully passed away after her second battle with Cancer. Trish has been a massive part of our club for over 28 years, 25 years as club secretary, Cornwall & Devon Land Rover club were her extended family and she enjoyed all aspects of club life, from Scoring and marshalling at numerous trails to being in the timing hut at Comp safari, also not forgetting all of the marshalling and organising at the away events such as Baskies, Mendips, Majors and Nationals.
Trish will certainly leave a big hole in the club which cannot be replaced!
Trish’s funeral will take place on Tuesday 10th December at 10.30am St Peter’s Church, Ugborough, PL21 0NT, to honour her involvement in the club there will be a Land Rover procession leading the funeral cortège, the family would like as many vehicles as possible to meet at Ivybridge Train Station PL21 0PL at 9.45am.
Following the service there will be a private family burial but the family are inviting everyone to the Hunting Lodge PL21 9JN from approx 12 o’clock to celebrate her life by sharing stories and memories. Donations are welcome to St Lukes Hospice.
We miss you Trish, a club member, friend and family member that will never be forgotten.
Annual dinner, dance and prizegiving
Saturday 11th January 2020
Please let a member of the committee know if you are interested in entering a team. We already have a marshal for the event so this part of it is sorted for you.
The club will pay the entry fee for members.
I wanted to send out a quick email to let you and your club know that the Poppy Appeal Tiverton, will be holding their 3rdAnnual Classic Vehicle Show on the 4th of August. After such a successful year last year we have moved to Petroc College’s car park in Tiverton. (Address: Petroc College Bolham Road, Tiverton EX16 6SH.)
There will be a burger van on site for food and a mix of soft, hot and alcoholic drinks. We will also be joined by some local business stalls and local community groups as well as our wonderful DJ again this year.
To make the event run smoother, this year there will be someone on the entrance to give you a special ticket to win a bottle of bubbly and to take the entrance fees. The entrance fee for this year is £5, all money raised on the day will be going to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. There will be information available on the day about where this money goes, if you are interested.
The show will start at 11am and run until 3pm, please arrive from 10am to get parked up ready. There will be marshals on hand to aid in the safety of the event.
Please find attached a copy of the registration form, this can be used for individuals or for a club stand, if you would like to book in early, or as usual you can turn up on the day and their will be enough space this year. If booking as a club, please can I have a rough estimate of expected number of vehicles.
I have also pasted the link to the Facebook page if you would like to share it or if you are happy to pass on information that would be great, I also have posters available if anyone would like to display them at shows.
Thank you for your continuous support.
