It is with great sadness that we learned yesterday of the passing of Rex Woodgate.

Rex worked in motorsport for such luminaries as Stirling Moss and HWM before joining the Aston Martin factory in the early 50's. He was pivotal in the building of some of the most famous Aston Martin racing cars for which he became the world authority.

He was also a regular competitor in AMOC events driving his trusty and familair DB4 GT for countless years.

The Club sends it's sincere condolences to all the Woodgate family.
