RIP: Alun “Lofty” Thompson – Lofty Recovery
Sad news: Relayed from an announcement on the Forresters Car Club page…
“For anyone who hasn’t heard We have lost Alun “Lofty” Thompson. Our thoughts are with the family and friends.”
For those who are unfamiliar with his considerable contribution to Motorsport, Alun, known as Lofty Revovery, has been there to rescue many stricken rallyists over the years. Many Cheltenham Motor Club, Cirecnester Car Club & EMCOS members will remember seeing Lofty recovery at all the Down Ampney & Wyedean rallies. He was also very often spotted out at classic car events.
The family have now made the arrangements for Alun’s funeral. It is on Wednesday 27th November 2019, 3pm at Langstone Crematorium.
The family ask that bright colours are worn to celebrate his life but if you wish to black that’s fine.
