John Quenby: 1941 – 2023

Thursday 31 August 2023

Motorsport UK is saddened to hear of the passing of John Quenby, former Chief Executive of the RAC Motorsports Association. Our thoughts are with his wife, Frances, and his family and friends at this time.

John was one of the most influential figures in British motorsport, holding his position with the RAC-MSA from 1990 to 2001. Under his tenure the popularity of motorsport within the UK greatly expanded, with increased participation in rallying and single-seater junior formulae.

John was also a director of the Auto-Cycle Union, Chairman of the Speedway Control Board and former Chairman of the Motorcycle Circuit Racing Control Board.

John will be sorely missed by the entire motorsport community.
