Forrest Tindall – 1932-2016

Posted on 05 January 2016

We were very saddened to hear of the passing of our friend and fellow racer Forrest Tindall, who died yesterday morning at his home in Springfield, MO. We most recently saw Forrest and his beautiful 1960 Mk.I Lola at the Lake Garnett Grand Prix Revival back in October, and enjoyed watching him power the classic car around the classic track.

Forrest was an experienced SCCA racer and Solo driver, racing FP Porsche speedster 59-63, GM Lola 63-69, Hm Lola 69-73, ITA RX7 92-96, SSC Neon 96-98, EP RX7 98-08, and a Solo II Porsche 912 at various points throughout his career.

Those that raced with him said that you’d be hard pressed to find a nicer, more easy-going guy to have on the track with you. Forrest, you will be missed fine sir. To his family and close friends: our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Tindall at Lake Garnett October , 2015. He was gracious and tolerant of my questions and posed in his car for me. His picture has been hanging on my wall ever since. Nice car, nicer man. He will be missed, but not forgotten. My sympathies and kind thoughts go out to his family.
