In memorium: Alan Pawling

Al was a big part of St. Lac and later Driver Dynamics. For several years he held the post of Competition Director for St. Lac. He also played a big role in the organization of the Regional Autoslalom events at Picton Airfield for many years. It is fair to say that his biggest contribution was the adaption of digital tech. to our timing and scoring, so that we could transfer results from the timer to the computer and then present them to the competitors.

But that does not go deep enough to show the measure of the man, who we all so enjoyed working and socializing with. He always arrived with a cheerful smile and was ready to help in any way he could and at the end of the day, it was a pleasure to sit down at a table with him to rehash the day’s events and anything else that might have come up.
