It is with great sadness we announce that a treasured member of RallyWA, and in particular Team Hotel, Tony Thurston, lost his battle with cancer and passed away peacefully on Saturday evening surrounded by his wife Pauline and family.
Tony was a long-standing member of almost 26 years with Team Hotel and was a key member of their SOS team over that time, progressing to Deputy Stage Commander Stop. He was a familiar face to competitors during reconnaissance on our ARC event, the Forest Rally. Tony was also involved with vehicle tracking on Off-Road events with Team Hotel.
He will be remembered for his contribution to the sport and we will all miss his sense of humour and keenness to play the odd practical joke on the unsuspecting!
Tony will be laid to rest privately.
We pass on our condolences to Pauline and family.
