Rider dies after Senior MGP incident

Organisers pay tribute to event stalwart

Festival of Motorcycling organisers have confirmed a second rider has died after crashing during this year’s meeting.

The Manx Motor Cycle Club says David Taylor of Sheffield died following an incident at Brandywell during Friday’s Senior Manx Grand Prix.

David had ridden in the Max Grand Prix for almost thirty years, and was an ambassador for the event.

Manx Motor Cycle Club chairman Harvey Garton said he was a well respected rider who was liked by all, and expressed the club’s condolences to Mr Taylor’s family and friends.

Speaking on behalf of all who use TTWebsite, I would like to extend our sincerest sympathy at this tragic time to the family and friends of David.

R.I.P. David

A man who gave so much to so many who came to the Isle of Man to live their dream on the Mountain Circuit.

You will be very sadly missed by so many.
