    The Manx Motor Cycle Club, organisers of the Manx Grand Prix in the Isle of Man, regret to announce that a rider in today's Ultra Lightweight race sustained fatal injuries.

    Fifty-seven-year-old DON LEESON, a retired single man with two children, from Corwen, Wales, lost control of his 400cc Honda at Quarry Bends.

    He was an experienced rider, having competed seven times previously, including finishing fifth in the Lightweight Classic on Wednesday.

    The Manx MCC wishes to express its sincere sympathy to the family and friends of the late Mr Leeson.
