Title: David Castel
Post by: dw230 on January 20, 2018, 12:48:01 PM
From Debbie Dannenfelzer FB page:

It is with a heavy heart that I have to post that Dave Casteel passed last night. Davey was a long time partner and co driver with George Fields of the 125 coupe, affectionately known as “The World’s Tallest Coupe”. You might not have known him well, he was a very quiet person, but he was a good man and a friend. He will be missed. Our hearts go out to his family and long time friend and racing partner George. God Speed old friend.

Dave was a very special man. We have shared a special closeness. I will miss him and remember him fondly. I hope George knows I share his loss. So very sad!

Oh my god, that's a shocker! What the hell happened?
Both Dave & George, two people impossible not to like.
RIP Mate.
