Local motorbike racer dies after Pre-TT incident

Sat, 28 May 2016

Local motorbike racer Dean Martin has died after crashing during last night's Pre-TT Classic Road Races.

The 58-year-old Santon man was involved in an incident at Billown Dip during the 850cc practice which took place on the Southern 100 course.

The other rider involved - Liverpool man Jamie O'Brien - was flown to Aintree Hospital in Liverpool; he's described as being in a 'serious but stable' condition.

Two marshals were also injured - one suffered head injuries and has also been flown to Aintree for treatment, the other suffered ankle and shoulder injuries and is being treated at Noble's Hospital. 

Race organisers say a full investigation into the circumstances of the incident is being carried out - the Coroner of Inquests has also been informed.
