Peter Hull

It is with the greatest sorrow that we report death of Peter Hull. He was 82.

He was so very much a part of the VSCC, his loud, cheerful comments enlivening dull and exciting meetings alike. I thought his strident voice might have been honed when, as a flying instructor, he had to urgently command a pupil to pull out of a dive!

He joined a Scottish Regiment and transferred to the RAF, acting as an instructor and later flying Mosquitos over France and Germany. In civilian life he continued as a flying instructor and as an Airwork pilot, before returning to the RAF in the former capacity.

Having learned to drive in an Alvis, Peter wrote the standard work on the marque and, as he had owned an RLSS Alfa, a similar book on Alfas, still a source for accurate history. Not that followers of other marques will forget him.

He was a committee member from 1960, press secretary in ’62, secretory ’71-86, then the librarian. He shared ERA R11B with his blether Douglas, racing it himself to give us another book, and rode fast motorcycles including a Vincent Black Shadow.

To his wife Jennifer, we send our deepest sympathy. WB

Cameron Millar

Always closely linked with the Maserati marque — he was the patron of its club —Miller acquired a load of spores from Scuderia Centro Sud in the 1960s and built 10 recreations of 250Fs, some using original components but always identified for what they were.

Millar was particularly proud that Fangio bought chassis CM3 for his own collection.

Ian ‘Pete’ Geoghegan

One of the giants of Australian racing of the 1960s died recently at the age of 64.

Along with his sportscar titles in 1963 and ’65 in a Lotus 23, Geohegan’s five touring car titles, four of them in a row, made him a national hero. His victory over Allan Moffat at the famed Bathurst 1000 touring car race in ’72 was seen as one of his greatest drives.

Edwina Overend

Edwina, who dies in November, was key to the survival of Mallory Park. When the circuit was faced with closure in 1983, she and her husband Ron worked tirelessly to save the track, then operated the venue for the next 20 years.

Her memory is perpetuated in a new corner named in her honour, and her son David continues the legacy by managing the circuit.
