Former S100 champ Chris Vincent has died

In Uncategorised

FORMER Southern 100 and Isle of Man TT Sidecar ace Chris Vincent has died this week.

After tackling the Mountain Course and winning the 1962 Sidecar TT, the outfit star headed down to the Billown Course.

Making the journey back from Belgium, he and passenger Keith Scott made their debut at the Southern in July 1963.

On their BSA outfit, they led the nine-lap race from start to finish at an average speed of 75.330mph and set the fastest lap of 3 minutes 16.2 seconds, equal to 77.980mph.

A winning debut in only the second sidecar race held on the then-current 4.25-mile course, it was to be Vincent’s only race at the July meeting, as although he was entered to race again in the 1969, he was a non-starter.

Vincent was well-respected and admired by his racing rivals, and he left a lasting impression for those present on Thursday 11th July 1963 as he wrote his name into the racing history of the Southern 100 Road Races.

All involved with Southern 100 Racing express their sincere condolences to his family and friends at the sad time.
