Obituary - Roger Carrington.

News of Roger's death on Sunday the 5th of March came as a complete shock to all who knew him, as we were totally unaware, and still are, that he had been suffering ill health, or in been hospital recently.
His funeral will be held at 2.30 pm on Tuesday the 4th of April at Gedling Crematoriom, Catfoot Lane, Lambley, Nottingham, NG4 4QH.

I have researched Roger's involvement with the NSCC, and it would appear that he joined the Club at the end of 1998 or early in 1999. Steve Miles recalls that he first received a phone call from Roger, saying that he had bought a Caterham Supersprint car and wished to compete in the Club's Sprint Series.

He started his sprinting career with the Caterham in 1999, finishing 29th overall in his first season, and continued to enjoy his sprinting and striving to improve his positions over the years.

Roger joined the Committee of the Club at the AGM in November 2001, and a year later took over the position of Secretary from Mike Simpson, who moved up to Chairman. In November 2008, Roger then followed Mike as Chairman, a position he held until the end of 2012.

Apart from competing and holding office within the Club, Roger could also be found organising the circuit setting-up at both Curborough and Thoresby Park, and on occasions acting as Commentator or Club Steward at events.

In his working life, Roger was a design engineer for Timber Tailors, a shop fitting company based in Radford, Nottingham, and following retirement, and in conjunction with his then partner Sandra, he purchased the Homeless Persons Hostel in Egypt Road, New Basford. This comprised a pair of semi-detached properties next door to their home. Subsequent purchase of adjoining properties meant that over time Roger and Sandra expanded their business into a sizeable commitment.

Having moved home to Sherwood and getting married to Sandra, life then dealt Roger a severe blow with Sandra's untimely death in March 2015.

Roger will be be sadly missed by all his friends and colleagues in the Nottingham Sports Car Club, and in the wider Motorsport world.

Martin ParkesThanks for posting this Mike, always loved chatting and helping Roger. I did some comms work for him at the hostel and about lunchtime he asked if I wanted something to eat and drink to which I replied yes. Next thing I have a place laid in the dining hall with the other inmates and a large plate of sausage, egg & chips in front of me. A few weeks later we were chatting at Curborough and he let slip that the other diners thought I was a new resident at the hostel and wanted to know whoose room I was going to occupy etc etc. He said "that they took some convincing!" Elaine and I often tell this story and I can still see Rogers smile as he told me this tale. A lovely person and I'm sorry I wont be able to make it to-day.

Bruce WiddowsonThanks, Mike. Roger had also worked hard as a member of the NSCC team for the three years of non-competative historic events at Mallory Park in 2006, 2007 and 2008. His support for the two latter years was of a keynote nature.

Gary ThomasMany fond memories of Roger and the person he was to us all. Without wanting to get cheesy but I found this which sums up this First Class bloke as far as us NSCC people are concerned.

Hot on the heels of the Great Western Sprint is the first of the Rockingham sprints organised by the BARC.Unfortunately I forgot to set my alarm clock forward an hour and the journey took a lot longer than expected thanks to roadworks meaning that I missed the majority of the first run. I still had a great day, there's always some really nice people and cars at Rockingham.
