I was notified this morning that long time member Jeff Robinson passed away yesterday from a heart attack.
Neva called and told me she heard from Jeff's family.
Details will be shared as we know more.

Neva and Brian had just been at traders world this weekend running a cinci autox with Jeff.

Very much saddened to hear this.  Jeff was a good person and solid competitor.  We ran against and around each other for years, most recently as direct competitors in B-Street when we had our Corvette and he was driving the Audi TT.   

If anyone hears about arrangements, please post them here.

Wow, incredibly sad to hear. Jeff was absolutely one of the nicest guys out there.  He will be missed for sure.

I met Jeff many years ago, probably 2001 when he was know as the "timing and scoring giro" coined as such by Craig Wollenslagel our then, solo chair. Jeff was a gentlemen first of all. Beyond that a fierce competitor, an intellect, and a student of car control that was rarely beat. He piloted his type R Integra with the precision the car deserved, then his Audi and then the Cayman. Most of all I must say he was and remains the picture of a fine sports man. As we all age we are reminded that none of us are eternal and this passing hurts a lot. Farewell Jeff and our sincere condolences to the Robinson family.

I just saw this on Facebook too.  This is so sad.  I had a blast trying to keep up with him this year.  He will truly be missed.
