Following a racing incident at the Offshore Circuit Racing Drivers Association (OCRDA) West Bay event in Dorset today, despite the best efforts of on-scene Paramedics and the HEMS Doctor, a racer lost his life.
Our thoughts are with his family and racing colleagues at this time.
A statement will be released by OCRDA in due course.
