Our beloved John lost his battle with cancer on 12th April 2021. He was a brave and strong fighter, always positive and gave it all he had. His funeral was overwhelming with over 500 people attending from all around NZ, many dressed in their team crew uniforms. Johns final journey was in a custom coffin proudly wrapped by son Jackson in LRC blue and adorned with the 17c race number.
Thank you to everyone who supported, cared, attended and gave John such a beautiful send-off. Keep his memory alive by racing hard, and enjoying the sport and comradare that speedway gives to us all.
