George Tatnell
Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of  George Tatnell who was born in Australia on April 28, 1939 and passed away on May 13, 2007 at the age of 68. We will remember him forever. 

I have found more information thanks to James from nasr for providing me with this info.If anyone else has further information to send me i will be happy to add it to my site.
Gorgeous¹ George Tatnell began racing Stock Cars at Windsor Speedway in 
1962. He then moved into the Westmead Super Modified winning the 1966 NSW 
Title before Speedcars occupied his interest, winning the 1970 and 72 New  South Wales Championship, 1973 Australian Speedcar Grand Prix, 1973, 74 and 
77 Australian Speedcar Championship with runner up positions in 1976 and 78.
Tatnell moved into the Sprintcar ranks and won the 1975 NSW Title in Lismore 
before finally winning the 1988 Australian Sprintcar Championship in 
Adelaide after eight years of trying (despite a second, third and two 
fourths) while victory in the prestigious Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic 
forever eluded him. Tatnell won back-to-back Winfield ASC Series (World
Series Sprintcars) Championships in 1988 and 1989 with a runner up position 
in 1990 and captured 7 World Series Sprintcars Round Wins and 8 Fast Times, 
however a ban on racing in Winfield livery in SA and Vic curtailed his WSS 
activities in 1991/92 when the series was sponsored by Quit. Tatnell was 
also the Sprintcar Control Council of Australia (SCCA) president for years 
from 1995 to 1999.
