Tragedy Strikes the TT

The evening practice session was red flagged after 11 minutes following Dan Kneen's crash at Churchtown. Tragically Dan died at the scene, sincere condolences to his girlfriend Leanne and to all of his family.

My last memory of Dan will be of him leading Michael Rutter into Quarterbridge, being first on the road, apexing the corner being fast, smooth and stylish. The Tyco Suzuki accellerating away towards Braddan chased by Rutter's BMW

My wish is that the anti TT lobby respect Dan's family and do not start decrying the event Dan so loved.

The photographs are the last I have taken of Dan, riding the Jackson Racing Supersport Honda on Tuesday night at the Bungalow.
