Road racer Jeff Ward has died

In News, Roads

ROAD racing man Jeff Ward has died after a non-racing-related medical emergency at Oliver’s Mount.

The Sandbach rider was at Scarborough for the Barry Sheene Classic, where he was racing in the Twins and Classic Superbike classes.

Following the Supertwin qualifying session on Friday afternoon, Ward suffered a heart attack and while the medical staff at Oliver’s Mount quickly intervened, he passed away yesterday afternoon.

His son Sam, also a road racer, announced the news earlier today and stressed that the incident was not racing-related.

Jeff was a regular on the road racing scene, namely at the Southern 100 Road Races where he was a 250cc winner and regular front-runner.

But his prowess extended up to the TT course and beyond as he was a podium-finisher at the Manx Grand Prix as well as a race winner at the Skerries 100.

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