Graham, can I add my name to those who have already expressed their thanks and appreciation of your work on this thread.

I have been moved close to tears scrolling through your wonderful pictures, which along with the detailed comments provide a fitting tribute to our friends and heroes who are sadly no longer with us.

Thank you.

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.





Your right Pep, Dutch sidecar pairing Jos Stet & Andre Schilder were killed in practice, apparently it was very wet & did not dry out till late evening when a minutes silence was held for Jos & Andre, then the sidecar race started & Boy never made it round the first lap, Geral De Haas was his passenger & survived almost unscathed & he became passenger for Eggy Streuer
winning the 1989 World sidecar Championship together..........such is life.

Gentlemen - I don't know about the rest of you but I am finding this thread, if worthy, somewhat morbid.

As a former road racer, I remember my departed friends in my own, personal, way.

I was just thinking that very thing myself as I was waiting for the thread to open. I for one think it does no harm to remind ourselves of those who gave us so much excitement and enjoyment
and sadly are no longer with us.

I agree, I don't find it morbid to remember those who lost their lives pursuing the sport they loved, quite the reverse, I think most, if not all of those who have left us would be pleased to know that they were not forgotten.
