Motorcycle and drag racing champion Wayne Heasman passed away on Saturday after suffering what is believed to have been a heart attack.
The Roodepoort Record reports that an employee of Wayne Heasman Racing, Sandy Botha, said at about 9.30am the 59-year-old Wayne complained about not feeling well and that he was going to sit in his bakkie for a short while until he felt better. When employees went to check on him about 10 minutes later they found that he had died.
Botha said: “We are totally shocked and saddened. He was a good man, and loved by his employees and customers alike. Customers have not stopped calling and popping into the shop.”
Heasman’s daughter Andrea posted on the business’s Facebook page:
