Mercer case adjourned

A court case involving the Auto Cycle Union and injured TT rider Steve Mercer has been adjourned until July.

Mr Mercer sustained life-changing injuries during a TT qualifying session last year when red-flagged riders were told to return to the Grandstand the ’wrong way’.

A case was due to be heard last Friday to decide whether any legal proceedings about the incident should be heard in the island or the UK.

The case has been adjourned until July 12.

A court spokesman said that the application to adjourn was by the consent of all parties.

The incident on May 30 last year saw Mr Mercer’s machine involved in a head-on collision at Ballacrye with a course car travelling at speed to the accident that claimed the life of Manx TT star Dan Kneen.

Mr Mercer, of Maidstone, Kent, is still receiving in-patient treatment in a rehabilitation centre for limb and spinal injuries.

Last month he confirmed he was talking to a solicitor over possible legal action.

He says he has not been allowed to see the official investigation report into the crash.

That picture is at Sulby Bridge. The riders in the background when they saw the bikes going back wanted to set of but told they could not because we reported that no travelling marshal was leading them.
