    GTWTK Roger Freeth

    On a recent trip back to NZ we were talking about Roger Freeth, a brilliant man taken too soon. He was an accomplished bike racer and well known as Possum Bourne's co-driver.

    Who knows where his memorial is?

    Didn't realise he was also an Elvis impersonator?



    EDIT: Found this Rodger Freeth Memorial


    The Rodger Freeth Memorial, about 3kms into the Helena North stage of Telstra Rally Australia.

    Roj died in an accident whilst co-driving for the late Possum Bourne

    Probably only me, but the first thing I remembered about Rodger on reading the thread title was that he was an astrophysicist. Oh and that Possum always had "ROJ" number plate after his death.

    I last saw Freeth race at Bay Park back in the 70's I think.

    Spoke to Ken McIntosh at IFOS 2017. Here with Freeth replica.

    Roger always gave our riding group a wave as he saw us spectating at Pukekohe. Some good riders in that Video of Keys.
