1 of 1

Sidecar racer, Dwight Beare, has died following an incident in today’s opening Isle of Man TT Sidecar race.

The 27 year old, originally from Melbourne, Australia, was involved in an accident near Rhencullen during today’s second race. The race was immediately red flagged.

Beare made his TT Races debut in 2014, achieving a 12th place in his second race on the Isle of Man when he competed with father Noel as his passenger. The pair returned to the Isle of Man TT last year, achieving a 17th place in the first sidecar race.

Dwight’s passenger Ben Binns from the Isle of Man was airlifted to Nobles Hospital where he was described as being stable with a fractured ankle.

All at MCN extend their deepest condolences to Beare’s family and friends at this difficult time.
