John Blades

4th January 2018

We were sad to hear of the passing of John Blades in mid December. A big supporter of the Club, Johnny was a popular competitor during the sixties and seventies racing many different marques in Sports Cars, Single Seaters and Modsports. He drove the works Clan Crusader debuting it prior to its painting with a body so thin he could be seen sat behind the wheel. The Johnny Blades Trophy was presented by him to the Club to be awarded annually to ' The Best NorthEast Competitor' something the Club has been proud to do each year. We last saw him at the Nostalgia Meeting where HSCC gave him the honour of presenting the winners trophies.
