Public Memorial for Ken Wootton
A public memorial service will be held at Phillip Island for Ken Wootton.
From the family of Ken Wootton:
Our brother and uncle, Ken Wootton, passed away too soon in Brno, Czech Republic on Sunday 24 July 2011, while on holiday doing what he loved. We sincerely thank those who helped our family bring him home and have assisted us in organising his public memorial service. All those who wish to participate are invited to this special service to be held at the Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit on Monday August 15, 2011 at 1.30pm.
The key details are:
Date Monday August 15 2011
Location Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit – Corporate Suite 5 on the pit roof
Back Beach Road, Phillip Island
We have chosen this location for many reasons including Ken’s incredible love, passion and commitment to Australian motorcycle racing and to the Victorian seaside circuit.
Suite 5 is the location of the annual Island Classic Dinners that Ken hosted with such good humour and enthusiasm; is above the pit straight – the scene of so many race starts that Ken called so dramatically for more than 20 years; and overlooks the Expo Building where the Motorcycle Expo is staged – an initiative that Ken worked tirelessly to promote to our industry and the public.
Suite 5 is also the media centre and journalist hub for the Australian MotoGP – an appropriate place for us to remember Ken, who was without doubt, the leader of the Australian motorcycle media pack.
We hope you can join us on this special occasion to celebrate the life of Ken Wootton.
Please feel free to pass this notice onto people who may wish to attend.
For catering purposes, please rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday August 11, 2011.
