Barry Simpson inducted into Redcar Speedway Roll of Honour
Redcar Speedway are delighted to announce club stalwart Barry Simpson as the first ever inductee into our ‘Speedway on Teesside Roll of Honour’.
Barry has made an outstanding contribution to the Redcar club, and has become one of the pillars that it is built on.
During Redcar’s history, he has acted as start marshal for fifteen consecutive seasons since the day we opened, making him our longest serving track staff member at the Media Prima Arena. Such is his standing within speedway, he was even selected to be start marshal at the British Grand Prix in Cardiff twice!
Barry has helped the Bears by being the main sponsor with his Simpson Racing Fuels and Lubricants for two years, as well as sponsoring his fuels to many Bears riders over the seasons. He has also played a large part in our Junior Programme, helping individual riders as well as the Cubs with his fuels and oils and many other items.
Barry is widely respected within UK speedway, and is well known throughout Europe with his company, Simpson Racing Lubricants. He has made a huge impact both on and off the track whilst associated with the Redcar club, and previously at the old Cleveland Park, as well as local grass track events both as a rider and a volunteer.
Redcar Speedway would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his support over the many years and honour him in this small way.
