Want to see which cars have entered the Aintree Sprint on 24th June 2017?

Here’s the Provisional Entry List.

Rev Barry Whitehead

May 25th, 2017 • By: Chairman Aintree, Barbon, Hillclimb, News, Uncategorized

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that the Reverend Barry Whitehead died on Monday 22nd May 2017 aged 86. He had been suffering for some time with prostate cancer.

Barry, self taught, was inspired to build his own “RBS” (Rev. Barry Special) single-seaters by reading the books of Allan Staniforth.

His cars, RBS1 to RBS8, primarily competed in the 1100cc racing car class, and for the last 18 years he shared them with his daughter Eve until ill-health forced him to retire from driving two seasons ago. Eve continued to drive, and despite declining health, he assumed the role of “RBS mechanic”, working in the garage at home, preparing and maintaining the car for her – he enjoyed the engineering as much as, if not more than, the driving. Eve continues to compete with RBS8 in the North West region.

Barry was a much-liked and respected engineer and competitor; with his booming voice and laugh (and insults), he was a major presence in the paddock and he will be very sadly missed by a huge number of competitors across the North of England. He competed for over 45 years, and until 2017 never missed a season, which is an amazing record.

Our condolences go to his children Pat, Eve, Mark and Nicola.

The funeral will be held on Wednesday 31st May, 2pm, at St Wilfrids’s Church, Standish, with refreshments at a local venue afterwards.

(We thank Craig Powers for the above)
