Barry Eastman

The Storm team are broken-hearted to announce the loss of team co-owner, Barry Eastman, who passed away in hospital Tuesday afternoon, aged 68. Barry’s friendship with Mick Hand extends back over 50 years to when they completed their apprenticeships at the same company and started going sprinting. After racing their own bikes, Mick helped Barry with his Honda CBX funnybike, “Tokyo Express”, through the 80s and 90s before building Storm together.

Now though our thoughts are with Barry’s family, especially wife Deb and daughter Sarah. Barry met Deb through drag racing and we are sure that the drag racing community will want to join us in sending our love and sincere condolences.
