Betty Smith obituary. 17-10-2016.
The passing of Betty Smith on Sunday at her home at Spofforth ended part of a golden era in world trials championship events staged by the Wetherby Motor Club. With her husband Ken and late son Les and his wife Maggie they took on and pioneered the staging of world championships at Marsett and Bewerley. The first was when the legendary Ken’s Canyon was centre stage and Eddy Lejuene and Steve Saunders rode Rothman RTL Hondas.
In total the Smith family played a major role in six FIM world championship plus the Superstars events.
No funeral details have been released up to Tuesday morning.
