Sad News

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of that wonderful gentleman, John Virgo. Just a few weeks ago John undertook the task of being Chief Judge at the 2021 Sydney Harbour Concours d’Elegance leading the Jury with his wonderful calm, thoughtful, and intelligent approach. He had agreed to continue in the role in 2022.

Unfortunately after a tragic accident at home John lost his life and everyone who knew him lost a friend. So well known amongst both the concours and motor racing fraternities, his love and knowledge of Rolls-Royce, Ferrari, and Riley inter alia, along with his charm and courtesy will be sorely missed but not forgotten.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his beautiful wife Sofija, whom he adored.

May he Rest In Peace.
