Jim Gavin

Club Founder and Former President

Jim was involved in motorsport for most of his life, mainly long-distance rallies. In the early ‘70s, with the arrival of commercial sponsorship, all types of sport became more and more expensive, especially motorsport. Part of a small group, in the Cricketer’s Arms Pub, in Wisborough Green that thought of racing lawn mowers, but with no commercialism or cash prizes. The idea took off like wildfire and today it is more popular than ever, and it’s still possibly the world’slowest-cost motorsport!

Jim sadly passed on January 10th 2022 after a long illness
