After a 14 month battle with cancer, Stacy Keyte aged 42, passed away on Monday 16 Feb. Jeff and Stacy had been married for over 20 years and had a 9 year old son together named Josh.
Jeff had planned to take his son to Phillip Island on Saturday 21st of Feb, for his first ever visit to a World Superbike race. The outing was aimed at assisting with the emotional recovery and when Jeff’s long-time friend Doug Clark was placed into contact with the team at Kawasaki Motors Australia, Josh’s dream of meeting his racing idle became a reality.
Josh was treated to a pit tour where he was picked from the crowd to sit a motorcycle from the Cat Bike Exit team.
Nearing the end of the day, Josh and his father visited the Kawasaki VIP Marque to attend the official signing session of the Kawasaki Racing Team. Josh was elated to meet Tom Sykes and Jonathan Rea who were pleased to autograph Josh’s brand new Tom Sykes race replica cap.
