The road racing community has been paying tribute to rising star Wayne Hamilton, who died whilst racing in the Manx Grand Prix yesterday.

Fellow racer Ryan Farquhar said Hamilton was a tremendous talent who could have made it to the top, whilst William Dunlop says his confidence was increasing, having beaten Farquhar earlier this year.

Former TT competitor Phillip McCallen was watching the racing with Hamilton's father, and said he was showing superb potential, and had been so happy after winning the Newcomers' A race on Saturday.

Moto GP rider Cal Crutchlow and female TT lap record holder Jenny Tinmouth have been among those paying tribute via Twitter.

The 20 year old was killed following an incident at the 13th milestone during yesterday's Junior race.
