2015 TT RIP Franck Petricola
Statement issued on behalf of the ACU

[Image: DK3_0256.jpg?mw=540]

ACU Events Ltd regrets to announce that French rider Franck Petricola, 32, from Pont a Mousson was killed following an accident at Sulby Crossroads at approximately 7.45pm during this evening’s qualifying session at the Isle of Man TT races.

Petricola was a regular competitor in the IRRC Championship and enjoyed his best season in 2013 with 11th overall in the Superbike category.  His best result, sixth, came at Chimay and he ended the year strongly with six successive top ten finishes and took a brace of thirds in the Lightweight Races at Horice and Terlicko.

He was due to make his TT debut in 2014 but was injured in the North West 200 meeting earlier in the month and was forced to withdraw from last year’s event.  He returned to full fitness and raced at Scarborough and the North West 200 where he finished 25th in the Superstock race and 21st in the Superbike Race.

The ACU wishes to pass on their deepest sympathy to Franck’s family and friends.

Awful news, as always in these circumstances. Ice Valley have had a difficult time of late, so my thoughts also go out to Paul Shoesmith. Odd place to crash (ie, not a corner) but that's an irrelevancy given the outcome.

What a dreadful news. Franck fought back so magnificently after his serious accident at last year's North West': only for this to happen now. This sport we all love so much has some terrible lows at times. My sincerest condolences to Monsieur Petricola's loved-ones & friends. Rest peacefully now.
