David passed away peacefully on March 16th at age 71 on Vancouver Island after a one year bout with Pancreatic Cancer.

David carried on with his business, Ennerdale Engineering, until shortly prior to his passing. He was a Canadian agent for Cateringham chassis and he had built 28 Super Seven cars over the past few years. His garage was originally a Lotus dealership in the 60's - 70's and he was the go to shop on the Island for British car repairs and tuning, He was an active and competetive racer and recently broke 100 MPH - IN REVERSE - in his Super Seven "Hanna" on a documented run at our local airport.

A charming British gentleman who will be sorely missed..

I remember David as a driver in the original Can Am series (1968-1974) driving a car of his own design. :)
