SIX-TIME Southern 100 Pre-TT Classic winner Ted Fenwick has died just two months short of his 93rd birthday.

Ted, of York, first hit Billown for the staple classic road races in 1988 and continued to return annually up until just five years ago.

At 60 years young during his event debut, the Suzuki rider claimed 10th in the 350cc Junior scrap.

Some eight years later in 1996, he switched to a single-cylinder 250cc Ducati which became his workhorse for the next 20 years as he scooped no less than six wins, including a hat-trick in the 250 Singles class.

Ted’s first victory came in 1998 with his second coming in 2003 before a three-year winning run from 2010 to 2012 ahead of his final laurel in 2015 at the age of 87.

Fellow riders described the veteran rider as ‘the gentleman of road racing’, and Southern 100 chiefs remember his presence fondly for both results and sportsmanship.

UK Clubsport wishes to extend its sincere condolences to Ted’s family and friends.
