120 riders back Brake at Three Sisters race track
8:10am Friday 16th August 2013 in News
FAMILY and friends of motorcycle fanatic Ryan Smith gathered at Three Sisters race circuit in his memory.
The Golborne teenager was one of two young victims of a motorcycle accident in Wigan last summer and last week 120 riders spent six hours lapping the Ashton race track raising funds for charity.
Ryan’s mum, Rosemary, explained: “Ryan was tragically killed last July after he was in an accident involving three motorcycles. A year on we decided as a tribute to raise money for the road safety charity Brake.
“They have been absolutely fantastic helping us throughout our stages of bereavement. Even though we will never be over the loss of Ryan the charity has helped us to cope.
“Ryan's biggest passion in life was motorcycles. From the age of four he was obsessed with all things two wheeled. Ryan raced for charity at Three Sisters and Clr Bob Brierley gained permission for us to hold an event there will all proceeds to Brake.”
Riders, including Hindley-based Isle of Man TT competitor John Ingram, paid to complete 10 laps of the circuit raising £1,200 for Brake.
