Jan Lahner (1942-2013)

I regret to announce the death of my colleague Jan Lahner on 20th January 2013, at the age of 70. Jan had been in poor health for some time so this was not unexpected, but I am very sad to hear the news.

Jan attended his first road race meeting with his father at Olomouc in 1946, at a very young age. Jan went on to become a highly accomplished author, journalist, photographer and historian. His knowledge of Czechoslovakian road racing history was encyclopaedic.

I know very little about Jan`s personal life, but I would like to express my sincere condolences to his family.
