French rider Fabrice Miguet is in a critical condition in hospital following a crash in the Superstock race at the MCE Ulster Grand Prix this morning. English rider Davey Todd was also injured in a crash in the Superbike race. The 22-year-old suffered suspected fractures in the incident.

Frenchman Miguet was involved in a two-rider incident at the Joey’s Windmill section of the course.

The other competitor involved was not badly hurt in the crash.

A statement from the organisers said:

“The Dundrod & District Motorcycle Club can confirm that French competitor Fabrice Miguet is in a critical condition in hospital following an incident during the Superstock race at the Ulster Grand Prix earlier today.

“English competitor Davey Todd has been taken to hospital with suspected fractures following an incident during the first Superbike race.

“Further information will be issued in due course.”


Racing has been delayed at Dundrod, with the Superstock race declared a result after four laps following the incident involving Fabrice Miguet.

Peter Hickman won the Supersport race, while the feature Superbike race was stopped due to rain after being red-flagged initially following the crash involving 22-year-old Davey Todd.

French rider’s injuries ‘un-survivable’

The French rider who was injured at the Ulster Grand Prix on Saturday is not expected to recover from his critical injuries.

Fabrice Miguet, 49, was involved in a two-rider incident at the Joey’s Windmill section of the circuit on Saturday morning.

In a statement this morning, Dundrod & District Motorcycle Club said:

“It is with much sadness that the Dundrod & District Motorcycle Club confirms that while Fabrice Miguet remains on life support, we understand that the medical expectation is that he has sustained injuries that are un-survivable.

“The 49-year-old rider from Normandy, France, was taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital following an incident at the Joey’s Windmill section of the course during the Superstock race at the Ulster Grand Prix on Saturday 11th August.

“Our thoughts are with Fabrice’s family, team and many friends at this difficult time.”

In a statement, he said:

“I’ve known Fabrice, or MIG as he’s known to many, for over 20 years, even before I became Clerk of the Course at the UGP. He’d been racing at Dundrod for a long time, and was a big character who had become part of the fabric of the event.

"We have been in constant contact with his team and family since Saturday, both directly and via local authorities, and I am extremely saddened to know that he has succumbed to his injuries.

"Our thoughts are with Fabrice's parents and the Optimark team, as well as his wider circle of family and friends as they come to terms with their loss."


Fabrice was from Normandy in France. He was a regular competitor at the Ulster Grand Prix and Isle of Man TT.




I take this opportunity on behalf of all at TTwebsite.com to offer our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Fabrice at this very sad time.

R.I.P. Fabrice
