Sad to hear that. I didn't know Barry very well, but I always assumed him to be one of the 'good guys'.

RIP Barry. As well has his own racing successes, hundreds of ordinary club racers got to race at Spa thanks to him. Sad day.

Just heard on Twitter that Barry Sideways has passed away. He was a bit marmite for many folks but a lot wouldn't be racing without his influence and encouragement.

Barry befriended the Tyler family when we started in the BCV8 championship, helped us get going and more. A true clubman and friend to many. He will be missed, another huge hole in the motor sport fabric.

he just about managed to use a mobile phone and I think he was able to send the occasional text. He said to me that he had no need of a computer and he was right, he managed quite well without, bless him.
