Dan Kneen (30) Kneen, a lo­cal hero and well­known TT racer, was un­for­tu­nately in­volved in an ac­ci­dent that oc­curred on 30 May dur­ing the evening prac­tice ses­sion. Kneen was in­volved in a crash that turned out to be fa­tal. He had fin­ished on the Su­pers­tock podium last year af­ter putting in a 130.347-mph (209.773km/h) lap. He bet­tered his own per­sonal best time this year by do­ing a 132.258-mph (212.849-km/h) lap a day be­fore the mishap. Dan had also com­peted in the Bri­tish Su­per­bike Cham­pi­onship, Ul­ster Grand Prix, and the Manx Grand Prix, win­ning thrice in the GP. We would like to con­vey our con­do­lences to Dan’s part­ner, Leanne, his fam­ily, and friends.

Adam Lyon (26) A very young and tal­ented rider, Adam Lyon was one of the most promis­ing faces on the Road rac­ing cir­cuit. He was a new­comer to the TT and, ac­cord­ing to his Face­book posts, he was quite pas­sion­ate about rac­ing at the moun­tain course. Adam was com­pet­ing in the Su­per­sport race one when he met with an ac­ci­dent wherein he sustained head in­juries. Un­for­tu­nately, the young­ster suc­cumbed to his in­juries later on. Our heart­felt con­do­lences to Adam’s fam­ily and friends. May Adam and Dan rest in peace.
