Convoy to follow paraglider death

The vehicles will travel from the Perth SpeedDome in Midvale to Yanchep Lagoon on Sunday led by the reconditioned 4WD Mr Wittstock owned before he died, aged just 22, in a powered paragliding crash on April 13.

Mr Wittstock�s family and mechanically minded mates have been putting the finishing touches on the off-road vehicle, named �Cruzilla�, in preparation for the event.

Co-organiser Thomas Bishop said he had not known Mr Wittstock personally but the tragedy had moved him to act.

�Having a fianc�e and young child myself, it really hit home,� he said.

�As a fellow member of the 4×4 community a few of us have banded together to get this happening.�

The group has received donations of raffle items and food to be sold to raise funds for Mr Wittstock�s fianc�e Kelley Romanelli and their newborn daughter.

A donation account has been set up here.

Anyone wishing to join the convoy can contact organisers through the Kyle Wittstock Memorial Convoy Facebook page.
