I am a close friend of Huxleys. I live in Scotland and I know Brian, Lee and Marc from drag racing, but also we used to live in the same town. I'd like to raise some funds to help them rebuild the garage and recover as much as possible after the fire...
So it breaks my heart to write this but on Saturday 2:00 in the morning a fire started in my dads garage at his home.. our dogs started barking which woke dad up as a neighbour came banging the door to tell us the garage is on fire...
fire brigade was called and they did everything they could but being the building it was they couldn’t stop it.. they did everything they could.. we don’t know what started all this in the first place, but we know where the fire kind of started so we are investigating..
Darren lost his competition ready s13 finished with brand new engine rebuilt by him with fresh paint ready to go 4 days before this happened!!! Darren put so much time and effort into this car as it’s like his true escape from life car (like most of cars are)
My dad lost his entire history of his past with irreplaceable trophies, tools, jigs for project engines as well as his passion.. his fresh focus v8 sleeper/sportsman-Et car that we was build between us to get all the huxley’s racing at Santa pod or Melbourne raceway.. and a his daily focus
I lost a almost finished built 347ci small block ford with all the right bits and no expenses spared stroker motor for my project Can Do reborn corolla..
As you can imagine we are all devastated beyond belief and just can’t believe it happened to us at this time..
Biggest main thing was no one really hurt in our family or the house that caught fire next door either!! Heat travelled very far even ruining mum and dads conservatory..
I’m personally very worried about my dad as I know he is worried to dear life about me and Darren and what we’ve lost but we will get through this and come out stronger..
Cars was all insured but not for the prices they was worth imo along with the garage..
Now I know nothing about a “go fund me” page at all but if anyone can help with anything let us know or what to do.. I can’t have Darren giving up his passion and really wanna see dad out more racing and playing with cars again
ALSO if anyone has old photos of dad collecting this precious non replaceable trophies from his autograssing days to drag racing please send them through as they mean so much to him
The huxley’s ❤️
(Withdrawal of funds will be done when the family decides to, to their account)
