Jon Gross obituary

Barely 24 hours after he raced his Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk3 in the Fordwater Cup at the Goodwood Revival, Jon Gross died suddenly after losing his battle with cancer. The 70-year-old US-born racer lived and worked in the UK for many years. More recently he drove a Formula Junior Envoy alongside his beloved Aston, which he raced for 30 years. Gross enjoyed motor sport adventures and competed in the Le Mans Classic and the Mille Miglia. He had planned to call time on his racing career at the end of the season as his condition worsened.
