A Sad Day - RIP Warren WIlling

Post  GSFBlue on Thu 10 Sep 2015, 9:26 am

Whilst browsing the Sydney Morning Herald this morning, I discovered an obituary for Warren Willing which was written by Jim Scaysbrook.

Sadly, Warren passed away on Sept 5 after a 10 year battle with prostate cancer. The obituary detailed a long career from successful racer to mentor of the likes of Kevin Magee, Michael Doohan and a young Casey Stoner.

I am sure many of us, ahem...older riders..will remember Warren's remarkable exploits on two wheels. Gone way too soon - Vale Warren Willing.

A really sad day...I was a TKA (Team Kawasaki Australia) supporter and Warren and the pesky TZ were always the fly in the TKA ointment...great racing though!
