The organisers of the Isle of Man TT Races have confirmed that a rider has died in today's racing.
46 year old Raul Torras Martinez, from Sant Hilari Sacalm, Spain, was killed in an accident during the first Supertwin Race.
The accident occurred at Alpine, between the 16th and 17th mile markers, on the third and final lap of the race.
Raul was an experienced TT competitor who made his debut in 2017, with a best result of 15th in last year’s Supertwin Race.
He recorded his fastest ever lap of the TT Mountain Course earlier today in the Superstock Race, with a lap at an average speed of 125.470mph whilst securing a 20th-place finish.
Raul was the fastest Spaniard ever to have lapped the TT Course.
In total, Raul competed in 21 TT races and his performances earned him a total of 18 Bronze Replicas.
The section of the course remained closed for several hours after racing to allow a police investigation to take place. This is normal practice in the event of a fatality at the race meeting.
