Three Manx Grand Prix riders are fighting for their lives in hospital.

Two came off their bikes during yesterday’s Manx Grand Prix Senior.

Both Peter Symes, who was involved in the incident at the 33rd, and David Taylor, who crashed at Brandywell, are described as being in a ‘critical’ condition.

French newcomer, Yvan Cardona, who came off his machine at Cruickshanks on Monday, August 24, is also described as being in a ‘critical’ condition.

The other riders who were hurt during the Senior yesterday were:

Martial Mourra (Mayhill): Likely to be discharged later.

Donald Gilbert (Creg Ny Baa): Discharged last night.

Andy Farrell (Creg Ny Baa)L Likely to be discharged later today.

Jason Brewster, September 2, Gooseneck: Comfortable.

thanks for the information Malcolm,  I hope all make full recovery, despite the "critical"  reports on Pete Symes and Dave Taylor.

Unfortunately, David Taylor has succumbed to his injuries. A very sad end to what sounded like a brilliant MGP; and my thoughts are with his loved-ones & the many friends he had in the roadracing world and beyond. Rest peacefully David.

Let's hope the other 2 guys who were seriously injured in The Senior' manage to pull through & return to full health. God it's cruel sport sometimes.
