We have a Super Sprint event tomorrow (Sunday) here in Adelaide - but  
it definitely won't be the same knowing that we won't have the Yellow  
Rebel MGTC (V8) Special on the track.

Longtime competitor, friend, MG Car Club of SA Past President and  
Life Member - and much more, Roger Waters, passed away a week ago  
after a long illness.  In fact, in typical style, Roger competed in a  
hillclimb event just a few weeks ago despite being very ill.  His  
funeral was on Friday.  His car took pride of place at the ceremony  
(helmet and gloves on the bonnet).

This picture of Roger and the "Yellow Rebel" has been on my website  
for a few years (some of you may have seen the car featured in  
Magazines before) :

I left it a while before mentioning this publicly in the hope that  
most who knew Roger well would have found out via the appropriate  
avenues by now.

I think I need to get a personal best time tomorrow in his memory.

Adelaide, South Australia
