Steve Hislop 1 August 2003

Manx Grand Prix fans are mourning the death of 11-times TT winner Steve Hislop, who died in a helicopter crash on Wednesday. Steve started his career at the Manx when he was second to Robert Dunlop in the 1983 350cc Newcomers, his brother Gary having won the year before. Steve finished 11th in the 1983 Lightweight and fifth in the 1984 Senior.

Earlier this week David Cretney the Isle of Man's Minister for Tourism and Leisure paid tribute to Steve Hislop, saying:

On behalf of the Isle of Man Government and everyone involved in racing on the island, Steve will be sadly missed by a great many. He first raced in the Manx Grand Prix in 1983 finishing second in the Newcomers event, and it is amazing to remember that it is some 16 years since his first TT victory in 1987. He went on to be the first rider to lap at over 120 mph and in 1989 he won three races in one week on his way to 11 TT victories, his favourite of which was in the 1992 Senior on the Rotary engined Norton by some four seconds from Carl Fogarty.

Steve hailed from Hawick, the home of that other hero Jimmy Guthrie who won six TT races. Like Neil Hodgson and Dougie Lampkin, Steve had lived for some time on the Isle of Man and regularly took the opportunity to promote our lovely island.

As a rider Steve seemed to get better with age. He was in sparkling form twice winning the British Superbike Championship. Indeed, he is the current champion. We will all miss him and our sincere thoughts are today with his close family and friends.
