DOUBLE RACE TRAGEDY MARS END OF TT FORTNIGHT
TT newcomer Gus Scott and a local female race marshal were both killed in an horrific accident at Kirk Michael on the second lap of today's Senior.
It is believed the marshal, Mrs April Bolster of Kirk Michael, was crossing the road to attend to another rider when Scott collided with her.
Scott, a 40-year-old motorcycle journalist from Kendal in Cumbria, was a single man with a 10-year-old daughter.
He had asked the organisers for a lower race number than the 25 he was originally allocated with. He started at number 45 instead.
