Racers rally to pay tribute to tragic Connor

In October last year the whole of British quad racing was devastated to hear the sad news that Connor Smith had been tragically killed in Italy representing the UK at the Quadcross des Nations. In the following weeks it became clear how popular and respected young Connor was with everyone in quad racing from all over Europe and even America. It was agreed very early on with Connors family that the NETT Quad Club would organise “The Connor Smith Memorial ” at one of his favourite race tracks, Dean Moor mx Near Whitehaven. 

The event will be on the 14/15 June and will also be a round of the Adult British Quad Championship, NETT Club Championship and also plan for the Top British Sidecar crews to attend eg Stuart Brown/Chamberlain and the Millard brothers who have already pledged their support for the sidecar class.

The club want to make this the biggest quad meeting of 2014, with some of the funds raised going to the Connor Smith Trust, set up in memory of Connor by his family.  The Connor Smith Trust will also be providing some support to this great event.
