IJSBA is deeply saddened to report the news that long time family member, Pete Bothwell, has passed away.

Pete was a major fixture on the IJSBA tour and at the Kawasaki Motor Corporation- he was known as an extremely skilled member of the race team.  Pete’s cantankerous but jovial personality kept plenty of us in frequent states of laughter.  He was a wonderful person to know and all of us who ever had the pleasure to work alongside of him will miss him deeply.

We hope to have a tribute up shortly as well as a more thorough biography.  In the meantime, we were able to locate this Youtube clip to share with you:

Cards and well wishes to the Bothwell family can be sent to IJSBA.  Please address any cards and letters to
