Harry Smith Memorial


The Harry Smith Memorial trophy is to remember Harry racing under number 219 initially, before changing to number 100. He had a reputation as a hard racer and had it not been for his many temporary retirements during his eighteen year career, he may have been even more successful. Harry took many wins during his career including the bumper trophy in 1984.

Sadly Harry lost his life in 1990 when he was involved in a tragic car accident close to his home in Colne.

The trophy, first introduced by the late Stuart Bamforth at the Bradford World Final in 1990, to be presented to the Grand Final winner, would continue to this day.
