It is with much sadness that Southern 100 Racing heard of the
passing of Barbara Wood on Tuesday 27th November.
One of the most popular and well-known faces around the
Billown Course for very many years along with her husband
Jimmy, Barbara’s knowledge and enthusiasm for the ‘friendly
races’ was second to none.
Son Barry became a familiar figure in the Paddock once he
made his Billown debut in 1988 amassing ten wins over the
following twenty years.
Barbara’s enjoyment of the races around the 4.25-mile south-
side course never failed to diminish, even after Barry had
finished racing as the family continued to travel south to watch
Always with a smile Barbara Wood was a great supporter of the
Southern 100 Races and her presence will be sorely missed,
but remembered with affection in future years.
Southern 100 Racing extends it sincere condolences to
husband Jim, son Barry and all family members and close
friends at this sad time.
