VALE: Robert Frederick ‘Bob’ JANE
The famous Racing Driver, Bob Jane, passed away peacefully on 28th September 2018, aged 88, surrounded by his family. Over many years, much has been said and written of Bob’s illustrious careers and his life. Businessman, race driver, race circuit owner. We need only say that he was a great part of Motorsport with multiple Australian championships to his credit. History in Australia, and his influence on the consumer business world is underestimated. Bob lived life to the full, and has long been a hero to many. We offer our condolences to his family, friends, and fans.
