RIP. It's been a while since someone was killed at Brands.
Other motorbike deaths at Brands in the last couple of years....

2018 Kyle O'Donovan BMCRC Powerbikes

2017 Fran Fletcher Classic 350cc Over 55s Championship

In 2013 was Karl-Heinz Kalbfell in the BMCRC Lansdowne Classic Series.

Several others earlier this millenium. In fact I seem to recall one in BSB or supports in recent years, but cant think who it was.

Thats the one I was thinking of. Thanks @Double Fart
IIRC he was coming onto the pit straight, dropped it and was struck by another bike. Very sad.
