Emotional occasion

Hughie Hoare was involved in motorcycle racing for over 50 years, first as a competitor, then as an official and a commentator. Hughie was a life member of the Preston Motorcycle Club, was thier President for several years, commentated at World Superbike events for a number of years, as well as at club and Australian level events.

Uncle Hughie was my Mum's oldest brother. He died almost 12 months ago. As could be expected, a large number of Preston members were at the funeral, and I knew a couple of them who had ventured up to Sydney for the Post Classic Nationals in previous years.

This weekend 2-3 Dec sees the Hughie Hoare Memorial Race meeting at Broadford, about 1 & 1/2 hours north of Melbourne, VIC. It's going to be a huge meeting, with classes for everything from Buckets to Modern Superbikes. 44 events over 2 days. It's about a 10 hour drive for me, but I'll be there!
