Motorcyclist Daniel Hegarty dies at Macau Grand Prix

Daniel Hegarty racing as No 8 crashed on lap six and died on his way to hospital

The Nottingham-based Hegarty was a former short-circuit rider and privateer racer - meaning he had competed without direct support of a manufacturer - and had made his Macau debut a year ago after recovering from a career-threatening crash at the Thruxton Circuit in Hampshire in 2010 that saw his elbow smashed in 23 places.

The British motorcyclist was killed after his helmet came off when he hit the barriers on the outside of the Guia Circuit.

British rider Daniel Hegarty has died after a horrific crash in the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix.

2016 also saw Hegarty, who ran his own business RTR Motorcycles in Bingham, record a whole host of top results at the Southern 100, Ulster Grand Prix, North West 200 and Scarborough road races.

"Daniel's family and team have been contacted and the committee will ensure every assistance is extended to them". Irwin later described on Twitter the victory as "irrelevant", adding: "My thoughts are with the rider".

The BBC quoted Irwin as saying it "was not a celebration".

The Macau Grand Prix committee said the accident happened at Fishermen's Bend on Saturday morning and shared its "deepest sympathies" with his family.

"It's a tragic end to the day". I'm still pretty new to it.

Topgun Racing Honda rider Hegarty is the first person to die at the Chinese street-race since Portugal's Luis Carreira was killed in qualifying in 2012.

But his win was overshadowed by the death of English rider Dan Hegarty. "There will never be a podium for this race".

"The reaction of victor Glenn Irwin said it all", said Watson.
