TRIBUTES have been flooding in for a former motorcar racer who passed away at his home in Letterston on August 15.
Terry Sanger, 79, was a larger than life character, who as well as being a highly accomplished racer was also a test driver and a skilled engineer.
He spent much of his life in Wiltshire and was a legend on the Castle Combe Circuit, where after his racing days he worked as a chief instructor.
He later returned home to his native Pembrokeshire, where he leaves behind his wife Diana and their children Tim and Jenny.
Rob Ford, area leader of Club Lotus Avon, where Mr Sanger was a regular guest speaker, said: “Terry was always full of enthusiasm and willing to help. He was always inviting people to come to his place to see his collection of vehicles. We are definitely going to miss him a lot.”
Chris Chivers, a marshal at Castle Combe circuit added: “He was a very generous, good friend, and the most interesting person I have ever met. He read an awful lot and was like an encyclopaedia.”
Mr Sanger’s funeral was held yesterday (Tuesday) at Parc Gwyn Crematorium and a memorial event is planned for some time in October in Bath.
