Manx GP

Post  terry lees on Wed Aug 21 2013, 10:48

Those that attended BC this year and recent big & wee Macs will remember Bob and Pete the "elderly" brothers who ride rather quickly. Pete rides an equally elderly silver Honda VFR. I have just received news this morning that Pete has crashed heavily whilst practicing for the Classic Manx GP race, and has suffered a broken collar bone and pelvis, and no doubt multiple bruising. He's being flown to Liverpool this morning for an operation, as I get updates on his condition, I'll post up.

Hi all, Just spoken to Bob, (Pete's brother) He went to see him yesterday in Liverpool hospital. He is in quite a lot of pain, but is putting a brave face on it all. Pete says he thinks he blacked out just before the accident, but I think this is a natural occurrence of the mind blanking out the awful truth. I'm sure Ellie will concur and explain better. In practice, the day prior to the accident Pete was complaining of poor handling, and one of Pete's mates thinks there was a problem with the forks. I have passed to Ross a photo of the actual accident that was taken by a photographer stationed on that corner, and appeared full page on one of the islands newspapers the following day, and asked him to post it on the site. ( to complicated for me) Its a bit grainy as its been lifted from the actual paper but, for all that quite a dramatic image.

Oh my goodness, that's scarey stuff.

You're right about the blanking out thing, it's self preservation.

Thanks for keeping us posted, Hope he feels better real soon
