Ants Wakefield

Ants and Archie

It is with an incredibly heavy heart that we have to let you all know that long time WDMC member and truly wonderful man Ants Wakefield passed away early on Tuesday morning, the 6th June 2017. Ants was a huge part of this Motor Club for many years and his loss is not only a great loss to his family but also a huge blow to all the people that knew him throughout his life.

Ants really was one of those people who saw the good in life and all of its people. I never ever saw him raise his voice or lose his temper or even criticise another man. I consider myself incredibly privileged to have been part of Ants’ life and I suspect that I will never, ever feel this close to a man again. It is a legacy I hold close to my heart and will always will do so.

Of all the people I have known in my life Ants was the one person I would always look forward to spending time with, and now I can do that no more. He was always so amazingly cheerful and virtually everything he said made me smile or laugh out loud, whether it was his unique way of describing some event that had happened or his incredibly positive outlook on life.

I will never, ever, forget him.

He just brightened up any day when you were with him, he was the life and soul of the party even when there wasn’t a party going on.

He simply was the funniest man I have ever known, his stories will live with me forever, and his incredible humour will always make me smile.

Ants lit up all of our lives and made them so much richer than they would ever have been without him. I can hardly believe he’s not with us any more.

Even after this dreadful news, I simply can’t think of Ants without smiling and I don't think anyone else can either. That truly is the very best legacy he could ever leave.

To Dawn, Archie, Rebekah, Ant's Mum and the rest of his family our thoughts, and all the members of Whickham and District Motor Club are with you.

Everyone just loved Ants, me included. I simply adored the man.

He really, truly, was one in a million. In fact he was far more than that.

Ants Wakefield, you made my life so very much better than it would have been without you, and I will always be grateful for that.

Rest in Peace, brother. Our hearts are just so heavy right now, but in truth, the more we think about you, the happier we will all be, because you really were the shining star that lit up all of our lives.

God go with you my friend.

I only hope that heaven is prepared for what is about to be unleashed upon them

WDMC to Support Junior Stage Rally Competitors

WDMC will support the clubs junior stage rally competitors with a £100 bonus being paid to the highest placed junior driver and co-driver in the overall classification of the Stage Rally Championship at the end of 2017. The winners will then be able to use the bonus to offset entry fees on WDMC organised or co-promoted events in 2018. For example the bonus could be put towards the cost of an entry on the Cheviot or Border Counties Rallies or used to enter a number of 12 Car Rallies.

A Junior is defined as a club member aged 29 or younger on the 1st January 2017 and regulations require an eligible member to notify the championship co-ordinator before starting their first event and also to marshal on at least one MSA sanctioned event during 2017.
