Graham Oates – Sad News
We have received some sad news. A long time competitor and member of the Lancashire Automobile Club, Graham Oates, has passed away.
Graham won our Sprint and Hillclimb Championship in his very rapid Lotus Europa several times and was awarded our most prestigious trophy, The Peter Collins, twice.
Chris Lee who competed against Graham for several seasons says the he will not only be remembered by those who shared the paddock with him as a very committed and rapid driver but also as a true gentleman.
Arrangements for his funeral in Southport are not yet known. We will update his motorsport friends once the details become available.
