Family notice: Wake to be held for Ramsgate Sprint racer Derek Dunk

Car and bike racing enthusiast Derek Dunk

Derek Barry Dunk passed away on Wednesday 3rd August 2022, aged 76.

He was a St George’s Boy who became a motor mechanic. He was a well-known figure in the Ramsgate social scene who will be remembered for motor cars and motorcycle racing – especially the Ramsgate Sprint  – and for his conviviality throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s.

Having suffered recently from ill health, he finally succumbed and leaves behind three children, and three grand and great-grandchildren.

The family is planning to hold a wake in The Ravensgate Arms on September 7th [from 2pm to 4pm], to which anyone who remembers him fondly is welcome to attend.
