Statement issued on behalf of the MMCC

David Taylor

The Manx Motor Cycle Club is sorry to announce that David Taylor of the Sheffield area of Yorkshire has died following his accident at Brandywell,  towards the end of last Friday’s Senior Manx Grand Prix.

David rode between 1996 and 2012, following which, due to other commitments, he was unable to come to the Manx.

Harvey Garton, Chairman of the MMCC adds:-

“David was a well respected person and rider who was liked by all.
His enthusiasm for the Manx was well known, and, due to this and his attitude to riding the Mountain Circuit, the MMCC appointed David as one of its Ambassadors - a role which he took to with his usual great enthusiasm.

He had missed being at the Manx since 2012 and looked forward to riding again this year.

David will be missed by all involved with the MGP and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
