A FOUR-time British motorcycling champion has died after his injuries forced him to retire, an inquest has heard. Keith Farmer, 35, was found dead in November last year following the tough decision to give up racing and the breakdown of his relationship. A post-mortem revealed he had no drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of his death. Coroner Dr Nicholas Shaw recorded Keith’s death as suicide after it was revealed he suffered a severe brain injury in the incident. Dr Shaw said: “This has been a very sad inquest to go through. The Northern Irish racer won the National Superstock 600 title in 2011 and National Superstock 1000cc successes followed in 2012 and 2018.
