RIP Fran Fletcher
"We were all so shocked and saddened when told that Fran Fletcher had been killed in the accident on Saturday afternoon whilst racing her Honda 350 K4. Fran also raced her Yamaha FZ600 in the CRMC Junior Production Championship and on Sunday when racing resumed, many fellow competitors had asked for a 1-minute silence before the Production Race that Fran would have raced.  
So, before the race all the Production machines rode slowly round the circuit behind a course car with the marshals, the doctors, the paramedics and the ambulance crews standing beside the track, flags lowered and clapping as a mark of respect. When the course car and bikes reached the point where Fran had crashed, they stopped and cut their engines. There was complete silence across the whole circuit as we all remembered Fran. After the minute's silence, all the riders and crowd clapped, showing their respect for Fran's memory. It was very moving and respectful of Fran's memory. 
After possibly the worst race weekend we have ever had, and hearing so many kind words about Fran and also how the club responded after the dreadful crash, I thought we should open this 'Book of Condolences' where people can leave their thoughts of Fran and prayers to pass on to Fran's family. I hope it might be some small comfort to them in this dreadfully sad time.  
Thank you, 
Mark George, CRMC Chairman"

I had the pleasure of knowing Fran and did her hair for many years. I went on holiday with her and a few friends to Greece in Summer 1989 . (I still have the photos) She was a lovely lady, full of fun.
I lost touch with her over the years but always remember her and her infectious laugh.
Thoughts are with the family at this sad time.
RIP Fran, fly high
