  1. Isle of Man TT legend Tony Rutter has died.

    Son Michael has released this statement:

    “It is with sadness that after a period of poor health, dad passed away earlier today. I was with him when he died at about 2am and he was very peaceful.

    “It makes me smile how dad lived his life exactly how he wanted to and how he got away with so much.

    “He will probably be best remembered for winning the world TT-F2 championship four times on a Ducati, as well as seven Isle of Man TT wins, nine North West 200 wins, and two British championship titles during his 22 year career.

    “I’d like to say a big thank you to his carers for taking such good care of him and all his fans and supporters.”
