David “Sam” Benfield 1947–2019.

A great friend and supporter of Midshires Grasstrack Club and Grasstrack Racing in general sadly passed away shortly before Christmas aged 72. David “Sam” Benfield from Honeybourne near Evesham followed our sport with great passion and enthusiasm over many many years, from when his father used to take him at the end of the 50’s right up until the year just ended. He loved all Motorbike Sports, and would always be seen on Meon Hill near Mickleton, whenever there was a scramble on. He keenly followed all the local Grasstrack’s and loved to cheer on his favourite riders. The Baybutts, Gerry Short, Wiggy, Simon Cross, and his local favourite of most recent times Tim Nobes would all get his vocal encouragement and well wishes.

His funeral is at Chipping Campden St James Church Sat Jan 4th at 12pm. All welcome.

RIP Sam.
