Fatality at Southern 100

Postby duke63 » 12 Jul 2018, 21:50

James Cowton had a fatal accident.

Ivan Lntin also critical.

It's not been a good year for the IOM and road racing in general.

Awful news.

It's been a terrible year for riders, especially some well known leading ones.

Fingers crossed for those still in hospital.

Been an awful year for Road Racing. thoughts to everyone involved :(
Remember: If in Doubt use Full Throttle, It may not make the situation any better, But it will end the suspense...

Never good to read and to frequent at the monent

Thoughts and prayers with the family and friends of the lost and wishing the critically ill make quick and full recoveries.

2nd cousins I think.

I never actually knew him but my Dad likes his family tree research, he'd often keep me posted on James' progress.

Thanks mate.

It's a bit weird really, having never known him it's not like I'm grieving, but it does make you ponder a bit more than if it was someone else.
