A third racer has died at this year’s Isle of Man TT race after 52-year-old Davy Morgan crashed on Monday morning.

The Northern Irishman came off at the 27th Milestone of the third and final lap during the Supersport event, and the news was confirmed by the TT organisers later the same day.

Morgan is the third racer to be killed at the 2022 TT after Welsh rider Mark Purslow died in practice last week and sidecar passenger Olivier Lavorel was killed in an accident on Saturday.

A statement read: “It is with a heavy heart that the Isle of Man TT Races can confirm the loss of Davy Morgan following an incident on the final lap of the first Supersport Race of the 2022 Isle of Man TT Races.

“We extend our deepest sympathy to Davy’s partner Trudy, his family, loved ones, and friends.

“Davy was a stalwart of the TT paddock, with 2022 marking 20 years since he first competed in the Isle of Man TT Races. Today’s Supersport Race was his 80th TT race start.

“His distinctive pink helmet was a regular and recognisable sight within road racing, having competed in hundreds of races across the Manx Grand Prix, Classic TT, Southern 100, North West 200, Ulster Grand Prix, Macau Grand Prix, Oliver’s Mount, and Irish national races, with numerous podiums and race victories along the way.”
