Motor Racing Ace David Reid Passes on

David Reid on #12 with Elson Ten-Pow on #61

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of my brother-in-law David Macgregor Reid who lost the race with cancer early this morning. David will be remembered as one of the early members of GMRC. In those days leather “lumber-jacks” and dungarees were the "protective clothing on South Dakota Circuit. Competing as #12 he will be remembered on his Kawasaki tussling with the likes of Max Jardim, Hillary Jardine, the Ten Pow brothers, Frankie Vieira, Johnny Tyrell, Frank Van Sertima , Eric Vieira and Da Costa Jones. His constant battles with Johnny Tyrell, Van Sertima and Frankie Vieira brought the crowds to their feet. Johnny Tyrell beat him to the pole a few weeks ago. On 4 wheels David also raced a Ford Cortina GT and Dodge Avenger.

David was the first designated rider for the Kawasaki A1R 250 from Sanbach Parker but was hurt in a practice fall and it then was given to DaCosta Jones for the race meet.

David lost his final race. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
