Dwight Beare, shown here with his father Noel riding as passenger, was killed during the first of two 2016 TT Sidecar races, held earlier today, June 4, 2016.
The official announcement from the ACU: "ACU Events Ltd regrets to announce that Australian sidecar driver Dwight Beare, 27, originally from Melbourne, Australia who was a resident of Onchan in the Isle of Man was killed following an accident near Rhencullen during today’s Sidecar Race 1 at the Isle of Man TT Races. The race was immediately red flagged.
Dwight made his TT Races debut in 2014, achieving a 12th place in his second race on the Isle of Man when he competed with father Noel as his passenger. The pair returned to the Isle of Man TT last year, achieving a 17th place in the first sidecar race.
Dwight’s passenger Benjamin Binns (in the 2016 event) from the Isle of Man, was airlifted to Nobles Hospital where he was described as being stable with a fractured ankle.
ACU Events Ltd wishes to pass on their deepest sympathy to Dwight’s family and friends."
