Sidecar racer to make final lap of Mountain Course

Mon, 20 Jun 2016

A sidecar racer who died during this year’s TT festival will make his final lap of the Mountain Course today.

A memorial lap to celebrate the life of 27-year-old Dwight Beare will leave The Grandstand at 12pm.

The Australian rider, who lived in Onchan, died during the first Sidecar Race on June 4th after a crash at the 16th Milestone.

The procession will be followed by a memorial service at St Ninian’s Church in Douglas – there will also be a memorial service in Australia at a later date.

A post on Facebook says Dwight would have wanted people to take the “belief to chase your own dreams and live life to the fullest” from this sad situation.
