Robin Drury @ Brands Hatch 1977, Robin I think was another to be killed in a road accident, if someone knows for sure & date, please let me know and we can add it to this tribute.


I think Robin Drury was paralized in a road accident and was in hospital for several months and appeared to be getting well enough to be discharged but he suddenly took a turn for the worse and died. I have no idea what year it was.

Graham, thank you so much for allowing us to share these great pictures. Some of this is pretty sad but I think its great that these guys are still remembered.

Robin died in unfortunate circumstances but I am so pleased that I can still say he was my friend.

With Robin, to our right is Dennis Parry. What about the other guy, could it be Doug Brocklesby?

Best wishes, Peter.

Thanks Peter, yes I was in two minds whether to do this, but thought there would be more people for than against, it is a sad thread particualy for you guys as many were friends & acquaintences, but I think by remembering those no longer with us they do kind of live on with us.

Thats Dennis Parry is it, sometimes in the programme as Dennison Parry, all these years I have wondered who that guy on the right was, you think Doug Brocklesby for other guy? I am not sure myself?

Cheers Peter.

In his later years, Charlie Sanby raced his Seeley at Classic meetings. This picture was taken a year or two before he was taken by cancer. Three days before he died, I saw him courageously racing this machine at Pembrey (starting with the aid of a pusher) and it was obvious to everyone there that he was extremely ill. A trooper to the very end!

St Joris indeed. I don't think Boy was the only competitor to die that day. As I recall there were quite a few accidents and it was the last meeting ever held on what was an extremely dangerous venue. Don't know why, but all the Belgium tracks at the time were lethal.
