It's not often that our community loses a marshal as well as a racer, so let's keep both of these people in our thoughts, next time we're at the track racer or cornerworking:

The organisers of the Isle of Man TT Races, the Manx Motor Cycle Club Limited, regret to announce that a competitor was fatally injured in an incident during today’s Senior TT. A race marshal also died in the same incident.
It happened on the second lap of the race at Kirk Michael. The rider who died was newcomer Gus (Ian) Scott from Kendal in Cumbria, a motorcycle journalist and road tester who had been entered in every solo event this week. Mr. Scott (40) was a single man with a ten-year-old daughter.
The marshal who died was named as Mrs April Bolster from Kirk Michael. The Coroner of Inquests has been informed and investigations are continuing into the circumstances.
