Cape Town - South Africa lost one its greatest heroes in motorsport on Saturday, February 4.

Motorcycle rider Ramsay was killed in a crash at the annual Passion for Speed International Historic race at Killarney. Ramsay was the owner of Gavin Ramsay Motorcycles in Boksburg, Johannesburg.

A rival motorcyclist had crashed on track prior to Ramsey's incident when witnesses saw him sliding in, causing him to lose control of his Suzuki GSX-R and crashing to the ground.
