A sad farewell ... but never to be forgotten
On 26 May, 2017 we sadly lost our very own in house Testarossa. Kirstin Shelley passed away peacefully after a prolonged illness.
Kirstin was involved with the MORIS project from the very outset and wore her heart on her sleeve being the "human" element at the end of the phone. In this sometimes faceless world of on-line business, Kirstin added value, comfort and smiles for all.
Kirstin had a strong background in the world of motorsport insurance and was once a familiar sight and sound – (yep the most raucous laugh possible) in the F3000 and F1 Paddocks in the late 90's as well as the International Sports car circus. Kirstin had family roots originating from Canada so her natural motor racing hero was Jacques Villeneuve.
Kirstin especially enjoyed looking after the insurances for many of the world's professionals on both two and four wheels. Kirstin worked at SLE Worldwide underwriting agency and Everitt Boles Motorsport Insurance but it was the MORIS project she particularly made a contribution to, describing it as "her life". Kirstin will be missing you all as much as those who knew her will be missing her.
Kirstin is survived by her daughter Sophea Shelley-Everitt.
Some words of tribute:
Everyone at Gold Track is going to miss Kirstin horribly. She was an absolute treat to work with. Always on top of her game and one of those people who always went the extra mile to look after her clients. She was a top person & the world is an emptier place without her

In making reference to a bygone racing paddock: Kirstin was a bright and bubbly personality who took no nonsense from us ‘lads'.

Kirstin was a bubbly lady and super efficient from the business point of view. Although I only met her a few times and that was some years ago I have fond memories of her in the Nurburgring pit lane being a constant support to the drivers and a friendly face to welcome us after some gruelling but exciting laps. We will all miss her at the end of the phone and through the internet at Moris but her helpful nature will live on.
Kirstin was always charming, professional and extremely personable. She took the stress out of otherwise stressful situations and you always had full confidence in her. No matter was too big or small and she always seemed to do everything with a smile. It was always a pleasure to chat to her both on a professional and personal level.
Its difficult to convey someone's personality in only a few words, but those that knew her will remember her very fondly and she will be sorely missed.
