A TT competitor died this afternoon.
Bob Price, aged 65, from Stroud, Gloucestershire, was killed during the Supersport 1 Race following an incident at Ballaugh on the third lap of the race.
Bob, a car body repair shop owner, was an experienced road racer who first competed at the TT Races in 1992 and competed regularly in the Manx Grand Prix as a Classic racer.

He also achieved third place in the 2004 Junior Classic MGP and took part in last year’s inaugural Classic TT Races.
The ACU passed on its deepest sympathy to Bob’s family and friends.
