The MSA is saddened to report that Tony Fletcher, a stalwart of UK hill climbing and an MSA Lifetime Achievement Award winner, has passed away. He was 74.
Tony became an RAC Timekeeper in 1959 and a Speed Clerk of Course in 1973, officiating at events that eventually became the MSA British Hill Climb Championship, which he coordinated until his retirement at the end of the 2011 season.
Tony was an MSA Steward and a valued former member of the Clerks & Stewards Working Group, the Speed Events Committee, the Sprint and Hill Climb Sub Committee and the Records Panel, and served as a member of the MSA National Training Team from 2001 to 2010.
Tony was awarded the Prince Michael Award of Merit in 1993 and the MSA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011. The MSA sends its condolences to his family and friends.
