I took this on Saturdays World Supersport qualifying at Brands Hatch while covering round 10 of the World Superbikes Meeting.
PARKALGAR HONDA racer Craig Jones passed away on Monday, August 4th, after suffering a crash in the ninth round of the World Supersport Championship at Brands Hatch in Kent, UK, on Sunday, August 3rd.
Craig, 23, from Peterborough, originally from Northwich, was one of Britain’s brightest hopes in World Championship motorcycle racing. In his career he won the 1996 British Junior Mini-Moto Championship, the 1997 British Senior Mini-Moto Championship, 2002 British Junior Superstock Championship and numerous race victories and awards.
In 2005 he finished runner-up in the British Supersport Championship before moving to the World Superbike Championship for 2006. In 2007 he finished fifth in the World Supersport Championship. In 2008 he was a regular podium finisher and contender for race wins and amongst the favourites for the Championship title.
He will be sadly missed. RIP
