Tony on the right, chatting on the dummy grid at Wakefield Park
Historic motorsport suffered a great loss earlier this week with the passing of Tony Simmons. Tony was best known for his iconic Simmons composite wheels, and will be remembered fondly by our club for the Hustler Formula Ford and his contribution to historic motor racing. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.
We will be in touch shortly with details of Tony’s commemoration. In the meantime, Ray Bell and Paul Hamilton have shared some of their memories of Tony, and have done a wonderful job bringing his achievements and history to the community’s attention. They have very kindly offered to share their words with the club, so please do read on.
