It is with great sadness that we have to report that our long time competitor and friend Michel Lombard has passed away last friday. Michel has raced with the NK HTGT since its inception in 1997 and had been racing his blue Alpine A110 for many years before that. His small caravan was a familiar sight in the historic racing paddocks all over Europe, his patch always being guarded by his trusty dog who accompanied him to all the races. Michel always had a smile and a friendly word for everyone and the NK HTGT community shall dearly miss him. We wish his wife Marina, his family and friends a lot of strength in dealing with this loss.
