Sam Clews Obituary, Death – Sam Clews, of Staffordshire, died during a Classic Racing Motorcycle Club meeting on Sunday, July 2. The event took place at the beginning of the Lansdowne Classic Series race that was taking place at Snetterton. It included multiple riders, some of whom had significant injuries as a result of the incident. Terry Griffiths, a long-time friend of the 32-year-old, helped investigators from the Norfolk police department identify the body that was found at the racing track on Harling Road, which is off the A11.
One of the injured motorcyclists was sent to the hospital with the others. Sam David Clews was born on November 4, 1990 in Stoke-on-Trent, according to Mr. Clews’ stepmother, who provided this information. He was a business owner and lived at Sneyd Avenue in Newcastle-under-Lyme. An investigation into his passing was initiated on July 11 at the Norfolk Coroner’s Court, which is located in County Hall in Norwich. The investigation was overseen by the regional coroner for Norfolk, Yvonne Blake,
who stated unequivocally that “multiple traumatic injuries due to or as a consequence of a motorcycle collision” was determined to be the medical cause of death. In January of the following year, there will be an inquest to determine the official cause of death for the deceased. In memory of Mr. Clews, Team Lansdowne has published a statement on its official website. It stated that “We lost one of our Lansdowne family members when Sam Clews was fatally injured in an incident that occurred at the start line.”
“Sam was a wonderful, talented individual who had a vivid sense of humor and would help anyone. Because of these qualities, he was a highly treasured member of our family. He was also a fast and safe rider who won numerous races at Lansdowne and, of course, rode as a companion to riders such as Peter Hickman at the Goodwood Revival. He was well known for both of these qualities.
During this incomprehensibly trying time, we want his wonderful family to know that we are thinking of them and praying for them. The Classic Racing Motorcycle Club also published its own statement via Facebook. It said that “The hearts and minds of all of those in the club are with the families of those involved in this incident at this time.”
