I received this on Twitter. RIP Robert and my condolences to his family and friends.

Despite the best efforts of the medics, Rob died of his injuries.

Rob was a highly skilled engineer and worked in the aircraft industry as well as his work locally as a motor vehicle technician. He represented the residents of Cuddington on Epsom & Ewell Borough Council for many years and served as Mayor in 2014/15. He served on most of the Council’s policy-making committees as well as assisting many local residents with their concerns. Rob also raised significant sums for his chosen charities. Whilst Mayor, Rob and his late wife Rosemary, launched Epsom Buses, Silver Service.

Rob was perhaps best known to us as one of Epsom Coaches highly valued part time drivers. Rob's talents and kindness spread very wide and it was typical of him to be giving his time so freely to motor sport. Coming so soon after the sad loss of Rosemary to cancer, our thoughts and prayers are with his family and wide circle of friends at this difficult time.

Horrible news. Wishing the best to all who knew him and were involved.

Sounds like from that quick read, this was a good man. Godspeed.

That was such awful news to receive on Saturday. I didn't know Rob personally but many friends of mine did, and perhaps obviously it hit many of us who stand on the bank at weekends pretty hard.

It's been nice to see the outpouring of support for his family and friends from the wider racing community, and I think all of us who have or currently marshal have felt buoyed by the recognition we've received over the last couple of days.

Unfortunately, a not so gentle reminder that Motorsport is dangerous
