Frank Yates
It is with regret that the ACU Track Racing Department Ltd confirms that Frank Yates, sadly lost his life after being taken to hospital due to an on-track incident which took place during Frank’s final heat of the day at the Ledbury meeting on Sunday.

Frank Yates was a popular veteran racer who has raced all over Europe in his racing career, competing in the Pre-75 classes and the 250cc class. Until recently, he was aboard a modern laydown JRM machine, competing with the big boys. Most memorably, he has competed in the European Veteran’s Grasstrack which has taken him to some of Europe’s biggest Grasstrack events

On Sunday Frank had been having some excellent battles throughout the day, no doubt enjoying himself as Frank always did. However, Frank Yates, a Grasstracker through and through, would never have wanted such a terrible incident to in any way overshadow what was a fantastic day’s racing.

All of our thoughts are with Frank’s family and of course, Holly the dog, who was Frank’s companion on so many racing trips. He will be sorely missed by so many in the Grasstrack family.
