ADV'er drknow killed saturday

I regret to report John-Mark was killed Saturday at Buttonwillow raceway. He was new to the ADV family, but him, and his wife, have been a fixture in the roadracing scene here in So Cal for years. Condolences go out to his wife Britt, and all his friends and family. http://www.littlebigracing.com/

My friend at work and his wife knew them for years. It is so sad, and tragic. He was in the safest place he could have been to have a bike accident and he still left us.

Sucks to hear that news. As a sponsor of a few AMA racers, I would least expect this outcome on a track. My heart goes out to his family and although he would want us to celebrate, that might just be one of the most difficult things to do

I read the link, very sad but well done write up.

"John-Mark always said he did not want a fuss over his death, that he just wanted everyone to have a party and have a good time .That is what we will do.
Rest in peace Dr.Know.We did not have enough time with you.You are already incredibly missed. "


I did not know the man but I still feel the loss; may his friends and family find the strength they need at this time and may he rest in peace.

Very sad news. Looks like a man with great taste in helmets too (Joey Dunlop Rep in the pic).

Deepest sympathy to the family.

We were in the process of planning our funeral for Papa Dulce when your freind perished. He's going to have a great riding partner up there.

So sorry for your loss. Rest in peace and godspeed.

Karl

For anybody in San Diego:

Cocktails and a memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 17th at the Sheraton in downtown San Diego (1380 Harbor Island Drive, San Diego, 92101) 6:30PM to 8:30PM, with an after party to continue at a large house very nearby Point Loma (address to be provided soon, it's right near the airport). For those attending the various races over the weekend not able to make Saturday, please join many friends and family at a party Friday, May 16th at a the same Point Loma home. Or at any time during the weekend for that matter.
