It is with regret that I have to inform the community that Luke sadly died today in a car accident. I don’t have full details other than he was in a convoy leaving a car show in Wales.

RIP Luke and all my thoughts with your family.

Awful. Spoke to Luke a few times and a thoroughly nice chap.

Awful news. I met Luke up at Croft must have been 2009. He was straight in with the mods on the car. Met numerous times over years often him coming to pick parts up usually with his trusty little dog riding shotgun.

A real character and no doubt one of the core members of our dysfunctional VX family.

Might I suggest we set up something for donations his partner and daughter?

This is grim news. He’s been a top member of the VX family for ages. Only met him for the first time last yeat at Croft but was a really nice guy, and he’s been a great help over the years to me and a whole pile of people in this forum and beyond.. Thoughts go out to his family.

A donation pot from the forum sounds like a good idea, so long as it’s not taken as insensitive

Luke was one of the nicest vx owners I ever met, a true gentleman, a great guy and will be sadly missed.

 

I cried when I found out :(
