Fund raising event for MGP injured rider

Post by woody194 »

Hi all

This year again I went to the Classic TT / MGP to spectate but also pit crew for a good friend of mine Pete Symes, Pete unfortunately had a massive crash at the 33rd mile stone which at the point on the circuit is 150MPH +.

Pete sustain multi injuries to his legs, back, arms and ribs, Pete is self employed so we are arranging a fund raising event / auction to help with what will be a long term recovery

The event will be held on Saturday 21st November at the famous Squires bike pub / Café from 7.30
The event will feature talks from Mick Grant seven-time winner of the Isle of Man TT and Gary Thompson MBE BEM ( TT Clarke of course ), plus an auction and live music afterwards by 'Screaming Eagles'.

Tickets are £5.00 on the door

We have already secured some auction items including

A Triumph 575 motorcycle

A Ferrari experience day

A tour of the Battle of Britain memorial flight for 6 people

A tour of Honda BSB head quarters in Louth

And a whole range of donated memorabilia from BSB & WSB riders

Plus other bike related stuff posters & calendars ect

So if you facny bike filled night out with live music and support a fellow rider it would be great to see you


I'll try to update the list as other auction stuff is confirmed
