CLASSIC Racing Motorcycle Club chiefs have tonight announced that rider Fran Fletcher has died in an accident at Brands Hatch.
Following the incident early this afternoon, the club suspended action for the rest of the day, and confirmed Fran’s death shortly before 10pm this evening.
A statement released by the CRMC reads:
“In a tragic accident this afternoon, our fellow racer Fran Fletcher sadly lost her life doing something she loved whilst racing her motorcycle at Brands Hatch. We offer our sincere condolences to Fran’s husband, family and friends.
After careful consideration, we have decided to proceed with a revised programme of racing which will recommence on Sunday after a minute’s silence in memory of Fran.”
The amended schedule for tomorrow’s racing will be available on the CRMC website shortly.
UK Clubsport wishes to extend its condolences to Fran’s family and friends.
