NEMCRC Member Craig Bell

It is with great sadness that NEMCRC learned of the fatal accident to its Member, Craig Bell at the Wirral 100 Clubs meeting at Anglesey last weekend. Craig, a popular member who was well liked by all who came into contact with him, will be sadly missed.

Craig and partner Victoria, had spent a number of years in New Zealand working as a Heating Engineer. He resumed racing with the NEMCRC upon his return to England. There are tributes to Craig on the Wirrall 100 Facebook page.

We extend our deepest sympathy to partner Victoria and young son Charlie. Also to his parents and family. Arrangements will be notified when they are known.

ERNIE CRUST 85yrs Middlesborough

It is with great sadness that the elder members of the NEMCRC learned of the passing of a Northeast motorcycling enthusiast of giant proportions with the death of Ernie Crust who passed away at home on May 17th

Ernie was as keen an enthusiast of the sport as anyone could meet. A charming and polite man who wrote books on his sport with local themes. A few of his books which reflected this local theme were “Drop of the Flag” – “Between the Tides” – “Teesside Glorious Years”.

He was also a hands-on organiser with the Middlesbrough Motor Club as well as being a collector of racing machinery in the tiddler classes.

Ernie’s Funeral will take place at Kirkleatham Crematorium Wednesday 6th June at 1.00pm.
Family flowers only. Donations in leu to the Redcar Lifeboat Museum and Friends of Redcar Cemetery
