Dunkeswell banger racer David Weare tragically killed
Urgent appeal for volunteers to clear vandalised Smeatharpe track in time for memorial event this Sunday.
Dunkeswell banger racer David Weare has been tragically killed during a race.
The tragedy happened at Hednesford on Sunday- and has prompted an urgent appeal for volunteers to help clear up the vandalised Smeatharpe track before a memorial event is held there this weekend.
Mr Weare, who was 43, leaves a wife, Sue, and two children.
The Number 78 was well-known and respected in banger racing circles, but a race event in his memory could be blighted by vandalism.
