The club wishes to acknowledge the life and contribution of our former Life Member Andy Leonello who was unfortunately killed in a road accident last week.

Andy was one of the very early members of our club and worked tirelessly for the welfare of our karting members. Andy and his son Peter were accomplished karters and travelled all over Australia competing in events. When the club needed him, Andy pitched in and took on various roles, such as President.

Andy’s love of the sport saw him become an accomplished official and so many of us remember him as the Clerk of Course at Oran Park.

We would also like to acknowledge Andy’s contribution to Combined Districts Kart Club. With a group of senior karters he gave the club it’s start. It wasn’t only Andy who got behind the club in those early days – the whole family contributed with his wife Margaret also being a Life Member.

We will sadly miss the friendly happy face of Andy Leonello at our meetings and gatherings, and we ask all members to join with us to offer our sincere condolence to Andy’s family and friends.

Vale Andy.
