Well he's leaving some giant footsteps behind isn't he? Not always an easy person but Bob had a vision and plenty of passion. The recent years have not been kind but wow, what a life he's lead and what a legacy he's left behind.
RIP Bob.

Sad to see a true legend of the sport have such an inglorious end to his career.

Also sad to see that he and Rodney never reconciled after the split and court case.

When I was a kid, I knew him to be the tyre dealer and was amazed at the racing legacy he had. Certainly a builder and a titan for a bulk of his life.

I wonder what the implications are for Calder and AIR now he has gone

Rodney has been controlling Calder and AIR for some time - I think he may even own them

An amazing contribution to Australian motorsport. I hope he is recognised and celebrated at the V8 1000 this weekend and at the Australian Grand Prix in March.

Rest in Peace Bob.

R.I.P. Bob, a life lived at full throttle.

Will Hagon made the comment on ABC news that, at its peak Bob Jane T-marts we’re selling a million tyres a year.

That is significant itself.

What a contributor to motorsport on so many levels in Australia.

Is it just me or should there have been a tribute at the 1000?

The at track commentators mentioned it several times across the weekend, but there wasn’t a ceremony per se.

Rev Coleman mentioned Mr Jane in his evocation.

The two T-Mart Carreras had a nice touch.
"In loving memory of Bob Jane" on the doors.
