Chris Mansley

By Chairman • August 6th, 2021

It is with great sadness that we report that regular Aintree scrutineer Chris Mansley recently passed away after contracting Covid-19 whilst undergoing treatment for cancer. A long-standing official who started scrutineering in the mid-1980s, Chris was a regular sight at events in the North West, particularly at Speed Events and Rallies in the region.

Somewhat eccentric, Chris was one of the true characters in scrutineering. His straight-talking manner sometimes caused discussion, but he was always willing to help and advise new and seasoned competitors with his vast experience.

Chris will be greatly missed not only by the scrutineering community but also by the many competitors who met him at events.

His funeral will be held at 11.30 am on 12th August at The Church of Our Lady of Victories, East Cliff, Winkley Square, Preston PR1 3JH. Then burial will be at St Mary’s Church, Deane, Bolton at 1 pm followed by a gathering afterwards at Dunscar Conservative Club, Hardmans Ln, Bromley Cross, Bolton BL7 9HJ at 2.30.

It is hoped to have a good turnout from the motorsport world and enough people to either carry or escort Chris into the Church. Those interested in helping should contact Andy Bradley on 07425 055 892. The Ceremony and gathering are open to all.
