Elma Paterson

8th August 2017

We are deeply saddened to announce the death of Elma Paterson earlier today. Elma was a greatly valued and much loved member of the GMP Scotland team, lap-scoring since our very first season at Newtongrange back in 1981, and carrying on in that extremely difficult role until a few short weeks ago when she became unexpectedly ill. Elma’s connection with Stock Car racing of course extended long before her career at GMP as the wife of perhaps the greatest ever Stock Car driver in Scotland, 107 Malcolm Paterson. Elma will be hugely missed by all her friends here at the Racewall and by a great many across the wider Stock Car community. All at GMP Scotland send our deepest and heartfelt condolences to Elma’s family and friends, in particular to her son and daughter, Lorna and Steven, and to her wider family.
