Motorcycling mourns Alec Wright

Motorcycle racing mourns the loss of Alec Wright at the age of 77
Alec Wright, the former factory racing manager for Kawasaki UK and one of the pioneers of Team Green Kawasaki, has died at the age of 77.

Wright, the father of GSE Racing team chief Colin Wright, suffered a heart attack at his Lincolnshire home on Monday evening.

He leaves a wife and two sons, as well as one grandson.

“It was a terrible shock to us all, but then Alec was always the master of the unexpected,” Colin Wright said in a family statement. “Now that the news is starting to sink in, I've been telling people that Alec has finally reached life's chequered flag – but he was lucky to have enjoyed more success than many people.

“He inspired a passion for motorcycling and motorsport in many people, including me, and will be sadly missed by those who knew and loved him.”

The funeral service will be held at St Germain's Church, Scothern, Lincolnshire on Tuesday 19 January at 12.45pm.

The family kindly requests donations to Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance Trust either via www.keepusflying.co.uk or the funeral director, Lincolnshire Co-operative Funeral Services, 12 Portland Street, Lincoln, LN5 7JX.
