Modlites to honour Biddle's memory at Maryborough

SPEEDWAY: It was always speedway enthusiast Tim Biddle's dream to compete in the modlites at Maryborough Speedway.

After overcoming serious health issues, Biddle recently joined Maryborough Speedway and was set to debut on the support program at this week-end's national junior sedans title.

Biddle suddenly passed earlier this week, though his Q40 will be proudly displayed at the track to honour his memory.

Maryborough Speedway president Wayne Moller said Sunday's modlites race will be a memorial program in the late Biddle's honour.

"All of the modlites cars will run his number for the night, we will have a minute's silence for his memory, and pole position will be left vacant as a mark of respect,” Moller said. "His dream was to race modlites, and he hoped to fulfil that this year. He had a practice here earlier this season, just got his car sorted and this weekend was going to be his first two nights of racing.

"That's one of the saddest things, he didn't get to realise his dream.

"He was only 48.”
