Ralph Broad RIP


Sidecar racers have the biggest cojones
This for me is very sad news.Ralph was very instrumental in helping me start my racing career with one of his Broadspeed Ford Anglia's.He always had time to answer any question that I might have, and also offer advice on different car set ups.
Rest in peace Ralph.
