Always in our hearts

This memorial site has been created to honour the memory of V8 Supercar driver, Mark Porter, who died on Sunday October 8, 2006 following an accident at Bathurst.

The accident happened on Friday while Mark was preparing for the Bathurst 1000.

Mark will be remembered as a warm hearted and all round good guy to those that new him and his death was a great shock to his family and the motor racing fraternity.

Mark leaves wife, Adrienne and one year-old son Flynn and parents Robin and Robyn and brothers Andrew and Simon.

This memorial has been established so that family members and friends may record their respects and support for a man who is sadly missed.

We thank all those who have conveyed to us their prayers, thoughts and best wishes over the past few traumatic days.

The Porter Family


The family of Mark Porter conveys its appreciation to all those who have sent flowers and expressions of condolence and sympathy following Mark’s death. Your messages of shared loss and grief have been a comfort to us.

Those gifts – of flowers and words – were from friends who were close to him, from the motor racing fraternity and from people who did not know Mark personally. We thank them all, but we particularly thank the race teams. Highly competitive on track you may be, but your support at this time is evidence of the very close bond between all those in the motor sport community.

We are comforted to know that the qualities that we loved so much in Mark were recognised by so many.

He has gone from our lives, but not from our hearts.
