“I [send] my condolences to your family and all those you’ve impacted on and off track.

“Thank you for believing in me and welcoming me onto your team this season, especially when my family wasn’t sure how or if I should even do BTC [R&G British Talent Cup] this year.

“It meant so much for you to really want to be part of this step in my racing journey and did all you could to make sure we did it together.

“Me and my family will forever be grateful for this. I enjoyed all the jokes and the special moments over the race weekends.

“Thank you for being by my side for each session, race, and practice day helping me to want more and work to get better but always making sure I was enjoying it more than anything else.”

Microlise Cresswell Racing posted on their Facebook page: “It is with deepest sadness that we announce our dearest John Cresswell has sadly passed away.

“This is not a post I thought I would have to make any time soon and to say we’re all shocked, devastated, and heartbroken would be an understatement.

“I could sit and write endless amounts about his passion and dedication to this sport that we love, and it would still never be enough to even scratch the surface.”
