Despite being more than 65 miles away, Simon's family found County Funerals in Little Wymondley, which hosted Simon's unique service at Santa Pod Raceway, a famous drag racing venue in Bedfordshire on July, 31.
Personalised stickers and messages were placed on Simon's coffin - which was driven from Santa Pod on the back of a 'hotrod hearse' into the sunset.
He was later taken for a private cremation at North Herts Memorial Park in Hitchin and his ashes will be returned to his family inside a specially commissioned hand-carved Tiki Man.
