Shane Byrne presents Mick Whalley tribute to Kayleigh Shoebridge

By KentOnline reporter

A canvas in memory of Mick Whalley was presented to the rider’s girlfriend at Brands Hatch.

Kayleigh Shoebridge was in tears as she collected the canvas from British Superbike champion Shane Byrne.

Whalley, 42, died after a crash at Donington Park in his first Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup race a fortnight ago.

Photographer Camilla Temple-Court made the canvas, which was signed by all the Ducati riders.

Kayleigh said: “I cried when I got it. I knew Cami was doing me a photo but I never expected it to be signed by the other Ducati riders.

“Steve Plater (series ambassador) did a speech in the hospitality and Shakey presented it to me.

“So lovely, it’s gone straight up on my wall.”
