Pauline Hailwood 1943-2020

Pauline Hailwood, wife of Mike, passed away after a long illness, on Saturday, June 13.

Pauline and Mike were married in 1975, after Mike had retired from car racing, the couple having two children, Michelle and David.


In 1981, Pauline’s world was blown apart when Mike, and their daughter Michelle, were killed in a car crash. Son David survived the accident.

After Mike’s death, Pauline was still a regular at motorcycle events. She never remarried.

David announced his mother’s death on twitter, closing with the words: “Now she is with her beloved Mike and Michelle.”
