Jim Purdie

5th September 2017

In a season which seems to have been blighted by bad news off the track, during Sunday's race meeting at Tullyroan Oval in Northern Ireland, Jim Purdie, father of Classic Hot Rod driver Kenny, became ill in the pit area and despite the commendable efforts of the St John's Ambulance team and the paramedics, sadly passed away. We send our heartfelt condolences to the Purdie family at this terribly difficult time and to all of Jim’s friends who will miss him so much. Our thoughts are also with the Tullyroan track and medic team as we can appreciate how difficult a time it is also for them at this point.
