Keith Farmer dead at 35: Tributes paid to four-time British motorcycle champion after shock sudden passing

Farmer, known as the Clogher Bullet, passed away suddenly, his brother David announced on Thursday. Farmer, who was based in Cumbria, was described as “pure raw talent” whose motorsport career was hampered by injury and bad luck. At the time of his retirement, Keith told the News Letter: “I just feel the time is right now because the enjoyment’s not there any more and my body needs the chance to heal from the injuries I’ve had over these past couple of years. Four-time British champ Farmer competed for BSB, Paul Bird Motorsport, Buildbase Suzuki and TAS Racing, with the latter describing his passing as “absolute devastation”. The British Superbike Championship say Farmer will be remembered fondly by his rivals. Glenn Irwin, British Superbike rider, described him as his “fierce rival”.
