Bill Wallis 1923-2010
Bill Wallis President of MG Car Club
It is with great sadness that I must inform you all that Bill Wallis died on the 22nd August after an illness, borne with great fortitude.
Bill was an enthusiastic supporter of the MG Car Club and a friend to many since joining in 1949. In his long association with the Midland Centre Bill tried most aspects of motor sport except actual racing.
He was at one time very active in auto-testing and was an RAC scrutineer for 10 years. As an RAC Rally Marshall for 22 years he did everything from administration at HQ to standing in the snow on Welsh mountains.
Bill served with distinction as Chairman of the Club from 1980 to 1985 but he will be remembered most for his role as our President, a post that he has filled in every sense of the word since 1996.
He was unanimously elected each year at the annual AGM and this was no surprise to anyone who was privileged to know the man.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his ever supporting wife June and his daughter Louise and family at this sad time.
