More than 200 bikers from across the British military have gathered in King’s Lynn for the funeral of a former Royal Marine.
Mark Fincham, 37, died when he was involved in a collision with another rider during a Superbike race earlier this month.
“He’s going to get a good send-off, which is the way we’d all like to go”
The bike belonging to Mark Fincham’s father led the procession from his family home to the church.
Many of the riders had travelled from around the country to King’s Lynn, following an appeal from the Fincham family for as many as possible to accompany him on his final journey.
“It’s testament to the biking community and how strongly Mark was held”
Mark was killed on August 6th while riding for ‘True Heroes Racing’ at a meeting at Thruxton Circuit, near Andover, following a two-bike crash. The other rider was uninjured.
On the weekend before the funeral, thousands of fans at the British Superbike Championship meeting at Cadwell Park paid their own tribute by holding a minute’s silence ahead of the start of the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship.
Mark had been competing in the class when he was fatally injured.
