Statement from the Dundrod & District Motorcycle Club 13.8.18
Back to All News

Published August 13, 2018

Written by: Ulster Grand Prix

Noel Johnston, Clerk of the Course at the Ulster Grand Prix said: “Fabrice Miguet has now passed away due to the injuries he sustained at the Ulster Grand Prix on Saturday.

“I’ve known Fabrice, or MIG as he’s known to many, for over 20 years, even before I became Clerk of the Course at the UGP. He’d been racing at Dundrod for a long time, and was a big character who had become part of the fabric of the event.

“We have been in constant contact with his team and family since Saturday, both directly and via local authorities, and I am extremely saddened to know that he has succumbed to his injuries.

“Our thoughts are with Fabrice’s parents and the Optimark team, as well as his wider circle of family and friends as they come to terms with their loss.”

Fabrice was aged 49, from Normandy in France. He was a regular competitor at the Ulster Grand Prix and Isle of Man TT.

Ride in peace, Fabrice

RIP Fabrice. :rip:

Sadly It did seem that he was headed that way after the initial reports spoke of 'unendurable injuries' in the initial press release.

Sadly another name added to the ever increasing list.

Alan 'Bud' Jackson is confirmed to have lost his life as a result of injuries sustained during practice for the Classic TT.
Nearly 40 years of experience on the track having made his debut back in 1979.

RIP Alan Bud Jackson. :rip:
Four-time Manx Grand Prix winner Alan 'Bud' Jackson has been killed during a practice for the Classic TT.

The 62-year-old from Kendal, Cumbria was involved in an accident during qualifying on Thursday night.

It happened at Creg Ny Baa during a Senior Classic TT session.

His death was confirmed by the Manx Motor Cycle Club, the event's organisers, on Friday night.

In a statement it said: "Alan was a very experienced competitor on the TT Mountain Course.

"He made his debut in the 1979 Manx Grand Prix and has four race wins to his name – the 1986 MGP Junior Race, the 1991 Classic Lightweight MGP, the 1995 Classic Lightweight MGP and the 1998 Classic Lightweight MGP as well as six other MGP podiums. He also competed in the TT Races and had a highest finish of fifth place in the 1990 Ultra Lightweight TT.

"The Manx Motor Cycle Club wishes to pass on their deepest sympathy to Alan’s wife Elaine, son Paul, daughter Emma and his other family members and friends."

Calgary's Sean Henderson was fatally injured at Castrol Raceway during a race organized by the Edmonton Motorcycle Roadracing Association. Henderson later died in hospital.

"He was always happy, excited, open," said Henderson's longtime friend Julien Camanini.

"I hope he is remembered as the passionate, happy, joyful person that he was. I feel like it's the same things that people always say, but in this case, whoever you ask, they will tell you the same thing. ...

It is with great sadness to pass on the news of the death of sidecar racer and six time sidecar world champion as well as four time Isle of Man TT winner Klaus, aged 81, who has died earlier today.
Klaus Enders' first world championship race took place at the old Spa in 1960 and he went on to become a six time world champion between 1967 and 1974, which included a one year sabbatical in 1971. Having won four Isle of Man TT's during the same time span, Klaus became Germanies most successful motorcycle racer, accompanied by Ralf Engelhardt and Wolfgang Kalauch, and his record is still unbeaten to this day.
All his world championships as well as TT victories have been on BMW sidecars, and the final world championship in 1974 marks BMW's final sidecar world championship to this day.

Ride in peace, Klaus
