Bob Jane feud with son hits new low | Updated: 9:42:43 AM, Saturday December 22, 2012

The ongoing family feud between tyre king Bob Jane senior and his son has appeared to reach new depths.

Mr Jane, now 83-years-old, was given a short amount of time the collect his belongings and leave Calder Parl Raceway.

He was allegedly surrounded by 10 security guards and marched from the racing circuit, which he has owned since the 1970s.

The incident is believed to have occurred after a private agreement, made in July 2011, came into effect stating Mr Jane senior would ‘quit and give’ the land to his son Rodney

A witness reported that following the incident ‘Rodney got all the staff together and said how he had taken over, how he now owns Calder Park Raceway’.

Mr Jane has apparently also sought an injunction against the transfer of the Calder Park land, claiming the 2011 resolution passed by his son was invalid as he was not present at the vote.

Rodney Jane could not be contacted for comment.
