Manx Grand Prix newcomer Dennis Hoffer has died

Dutch newcomer was involved in an incident during yesterday evenings practice

DUTCH Manx Grand Prix newcomer Dennis Hoffer has died following an incident near to the 13th milestone during yesterday evening’s qualifying session.

It was during Wednesday evening's practice session that the race was red flagged at around 6:40pm due to two separate incidents near to the 13th milestone.

The Manx Motorcycle Club have issued this statement:

“The Manx Motor Cycle Club, organisers of the Manx Grand Prix, regret to announce that Dennis Hoffer, 42, from Hoogkarspel in Holland was killed in an incident near the 13th milestone during last night’s Manx Grand Prix qualifying session on the Isle of Man.

“Hoffer, 42, who was single, was a newcomer to the Mountain Course. He has been a regular racer on European circuits since 2009.

“The Manx Motor Cycle Club wishes to extend its deepest sympathy to Dennis’s family and friends.”

Ken Davis has been named as the other rider involved in a separate incident at the 13th milestone around the same time. Davis was taken to Noble's Hospital by airmed after sustaining fractures and is said to be in a comfortable condition.

From all of us at Visordown, we also wish to send our sincere condolences to Dennis’ family and friends at this time and send our best wishes to Ken.
