February memorial for Walkinshaw

Tom WalkinshawA memorial service for Tom Walkinshaw, who died last Sunday, will take place on 4 February in Gloucester Cathedral. His funeral will be held in private.

The revered team boss and former driver had been suffering from cancer.

A statement from Walkinshaw's family said: "Sadly, Tom passed away on Sunday 12th December.

"He had been battling with cancer for three years; he died peacefully with his family at his house in Oxfordshire.

"It was Tom's wish to have a private family funeral. A Memorial Service will take place in Gloucester Cathedral on Friday 4th February 2011, at 12 noon.

"Martine and the boys are overwhelmed with the lovely messages and tributes which they have received and at the same time are extremely grateful to the media for respecting their privacy at this sad and difficult time.

"Tom's brave battle with cancer would have been harder without the faultless care he received from the hospital in Brussels, Fondation C.A.R.E. Cavell Action for Research & Expertise and, more recently, the invaluable support from the local Lawrence Home Nursing Team.

"The family therefore request that should you wish to make a charitable donation, you might like to consider either of these organisations."

Walkinshaw's TWR organisation achieved huge success in touring cars and sportscars, most famously with Jaguar at Le Mans and in the World Sportscar Championship. He was pivotal in Benetton's rise to Formula 1 championship victory with Michael Schumacher in the early 1990s, and later ran the Ligier and Arrows F1 teams.
