Carl Sorenson

Carl ‘Lovely’ Sorenson


Truro & District Motor Club are very sad to hear the news that Carl ‘Lovely’ Sorenson was fatally injured in a recent road accident.

Carl from Plymouth had been a regular on many stage rallies in Devon, Cornwall and internationally for many years, most of us remember him alongside Andy Orchard and in recent times with Gary Le Coadou. 

Carl recently worked for Burts crisps in Plymouth and was helpful with the marshal packs for the Watergate Bay Hillclimb. He always called people ‘lovely’ and had a smile on his face.

The club offer their respects and best wishes to the family.
