Mark Lowe

From John Newlove:

Please see email from Paul Swainson regarding Mark Lowe who unfortunately passed away recently, Mark helped out on North Humberside events particularly on our Worcop event.



Hope you fit and well. Asking for a favour, as you are probably aware Mark Lowe recently passed away due to Covid complications. Mark was an X-ray porter at the local James Cook hospital as well as a big fan of rallying and speedway.

With the permission of Mark’s partner Amanda, Roy Barwick, Mick Welford and myself have produced a marshals sticker in memory of Mark.

They are approx 5 inch by 3 inch vinyl stickers. If people would like one or more we are suggesting a donation of £4 Inc P &P per sticker.

Proceeds will go to Amanda and the two boys.

I would be grateful if you could forward this email to marshals on your lists.

If people want one they can contact me by email.

Stay safe and hopefully we can be out marshaling again asap.

Regards Paul Swainson


Sue Rylatt RIP

From Trackrod Rally Yorkshire (3rd May 2020):

It is with a very heavy heart that we have to inform you that Sue died peacefully during the night.
Sue’s funeral is to be held at Huddersfield Crematorium but limited to 10 people due to current COVID-19 restrictions. Her wish is that her ashes be scattered in Dalby Forest and we will inform you of the arrangements at a later date.
We are sure you will all join the event in sending our condolences to Chris at this time.

Ladies and Gentlemen

It is with great regret that I have to inform you of the death of Tony Raylor, after a sudden short illness Tony succumed to heart failure while spending the winter, with his wife Carole, in South Africa.

Tony who entered many international rallies in the 60’s was Chairman of York Motor Club organising many of York’s National Rallies in the 70’s, he will be sadly missed on the Yorkshire / Jaguar classic car scene.

John Newlove adds:

I’m sure quite a few of the older generation will remember Tony. He was a regular at the Sutton Classic Car show.

In the days of our Rallies starting at garages in Hull Tony’s company Raylor Scaffolding used to provide a start ramp made of scaffolding.
