Goodbye Old Friend - Godfrey Spargo

It is with great and deep sadness that the Simota Speedway team announce the passing of our sponsor and friend Godfrey Spargo on the 5th November from complications of a long illness.

Godfrey has been a firm supporter and a great friend of Simota Speedway Team.  He had always ensured that Sam and the team had everything possible from the start to the finish of each season. 

A man who had a long career in the media services at the BBC followed by promoting British Speedway team The Trelawny Tigers, which through his connections with the sport discovered this young up and coming rider from the Czech Republic. Where in 2005, Godfrey introduced Sam Simota to the UK track at Reading Racers.  This was to be the beginning of a firm friendship which would continue for the rest of Godfrey's life.

Sam and all at Simota Speedway team, along with their families and the sponsors would like to thank Godfrey for his selfless, passionate attitude, support and most of all friendship to us all.  Forever in our thoughts and memories. Goodbye old friend!
