Sad news

It is with great sadness the club learns of the passing of one of our founder members Ken Smith.

Ken had been involved in the NWTPC since it began back in 1979. His Tractor named Lancashire Lady with chryslers then Chevy's on was one of the first "powerful" mods in the UK.
 He was then the first in the UK to build a 2wd. The Legend and Hero was a crowd favourite and was recently brought back to the track by Kens son Edd
Ken was never shy of speaking his mind , and Club meetings with him were always colourful but fun! It was his drive and passion for the sport that helped to get the Club to where it is today. He was still in the background checking up on the committee at the Show pull this year 

Ken , you will be missed by the pulling world, but especially by all of us in the NWTPC.
Our thoughts are with His Family at this time 

Kens Funeral will be held On the 7th of Oct at 10am  
St James the Great church, Church Lane, Wrightington w Heskin, Lancashire, WN6 9SN
