After hearing about the tragic and unexpected death of motorbike racer Keith Farmer, everyone is grieved. His actual cause of death, which impacted his passing, is unknown. No information was provided regarding the funeral either.
Family, friends, and loved ones are grieving and inconsolable as they post tributes and condolences to Keith on their social media platforms:
“Gutted to read the news about Keith Farmer. An unreal talent, rip Keith.”
“I’m struggling to believe what I’ve heard or understand why? I grew up in the mixed racing paddock with Keith and David. RIP, Keith Farmer. My thoughts are with the Farmer family.”
After a hard week at Silverstone, “Clogher Bullet” returned to the British Superbike class, driving an iForce Lloyd and Jones BMW for the PR Racing outfit. The Farmer claimed he had always planned to give up racing at the end of the current season, but two accidents at Silverstone forced him to do it sooner.
In 2011 and 2012, the 34-year-old won the Superstock 600 and Superstock 1000, respectively. The British Supersport Championship in 2017 and a second Superstock 1000 championship in 2018 with the Northern Ireland TAS Racing Team provided more evidence of Farmer’s ability.
Farmer said he felt extremely fortunate to have won four British championships after competing for some of the greatest teams in the field as he reflected on his trophy-filled career. “I’ve been competing in the BSB paddock for ten years and have represented some top teams, taking many chances with varying degrees of success.
“I consider myself extremely fortunate to have these possibilities, and they have helped me win four British titles. “I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who has assisted me in any manner, especially my family who have supported me in both good and terrible times. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without one of you.
