It’s with a heavy heart I sit and write this, I found out a few days ago my friend of 30 years, Trevor Rogers, is no longer with us.
I’m very sad to report that our friend and NCRS UK Chairman Trevor Rogers died last Saturday 25th March after a short illness. He leaves his daughter Alicia and partner Fifi.
To Corvette enthusiasts, he was best known as the founder and chairman of the UK chapter of the National Corvette Restorers Society NCRS . That was in 1998, and sometimes almost single-handed, he kept the NCRS UK show on the road for 25 years of memorable road trips, judging events, annual Flight, events , three of these even in France.
He also edited, illustrated and produced Corvette Torque Magazine, first on paper and later online where it became the best of any NCRS Chapter publication worldwide
A full obituary will follow to include his career as a successful photographer, producer and film cameraman, but for now he will be sadly missed by his hundreds of friends, professional colleagues, Corvette enthusiasts who all remember his endless enthusiasm and warm engagement with his friends.
Tom Falconer – Judging Chairman
It is with extreme sadness that we must report the passing of NCRSUK Founder Member Richard Harris.
Richard has been a committee member since chapter inception and had been fighting cancer for some time.
Richard’s focus whilst undergoing treatment was his beloved 1966 L72 BB Convertible Corvette for which he attained yet another Top Flight in November
You will be very sadly missed. my dear old friend.
