TT and BSB stars go topless for Simon Andrews fund

British Superbike racers have stripped off for a charity calendar in a bid to raise funds in memory of Evesham biker Simon Andrews.

The 2015 calendar shows famous faces from the biking world baring their chests in support of the popular Vale rider who died aged 31 on Monday 19 May this year, after crashing at the North West 200 Superstock road race in Northern Ireland on 16 May.

 Since losing Simon, his family have been determined to carry on his legacy and have been fundraising for a number of causes close to his heart. So far they have donated £5000 to the Isle of Man Hyperbaric Chamber, a charity providing hyperbaric oxygen therapy for rehabilitation, and nearly £4000 to the air ambulance at Strensham.

The calendar will help to raise money for the Simon Andrews Trust, with £5 from each sale going to the fund, which will support injured riders with their rehabilitation.

The calendars, which feature famous faces such as John McGuinness, Shakey Byrne, Michael Rutter, Tommy Bridewell and James Ellison, have been produced by Feridax Shoei and are available online at www.shoeiassured.co.uk/liveunstoppable.php.

Pictured are Simon’s sister Claire, mother Dee, TT Star and Simon’s former team-mate John McGuinness and Mark Ingleby of Feridax.
