Manx Grand Prix Ambassador dies following Senior incident

David Taylor has died following an incident in the Senior race

David Taylor.

THE Manx Motor Cycle Club (MMCC) have sadly announced that Manx Grand Prix competitor David Taylor succumbed to injuries sustained in an incident at Brandywell during the Senior race last Friday.

Taylor, from Sheffield in Yorkshire, first raced the Mountain Course in 1996 up until 2012 when other commitments prevented him from racing on the Island until this year.

Harvey Garton, Chairman of the MMCC said: "David was a well respected person and rider who was liked by all.

"His enthusiasm for the Manx was well known and due to this and his attitude to riding the Mountain Circuit, the MMCC appointed David as one of its Ambassadors - a role which he took to with his usual great enthusiasm.

"He had missed being at the Manx since 2012 and looked forward to riding again this year.
David will be missed by all involved with the MGP and our sincere condolences, thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends."

The last lap of the Senior Manx Grand Prix race was unfortunately filled with incidents and was therefore red flagged before the end.

Two other riders, Peter Symes who came off at the 33rd Milestone in the Senior and French newcomer Yvan Cardona of Perpignan cam off at Cruickshanks Corner in Ramsey on Monday evening are described as in a critical condition.

From all of us here at Visordown, our thoughts are with David's family and friends at this sad time as well as with all those injured and recovering during the Manx Grand Prix fortnight.
