Mildenhall Speedway are deeply saddened by the news this morning of the passing of Martyn Woods, Sam’s father.

Martyn was a larger than life character who was an immensely popular figure around the pits at Mildenhall, always ready to help anyone and like Sam a true team player

Kevin Jolly commented on this devastating news, he said “Martyn was a lovely man and all our thoughts are with Sam and his Mum Sue at this sad time. Martyn will be greatly missed by all of us and my abiding memory of Martyn was when the whole famiy turned up to watch Sam have a practise spin following his recent injury. This summed up for me what a strong supportive family unit they were and it goes without saying that we will support Sam the very best we can as a club”
