The organisers of the Isle of Man TT Races, the Manx Motor Cycle Club Limited, regret to announce that a rider was fatally injured in Monday night’s practice.

He was 39 year old Joakim Karlsson from Habo Jonkoping in Sweden whose Superbike Suzuki crashed at Kirk Michael on the first lap of the session. Mr.Karlsson, who was competing in his first TT, was a single man but with a seven year old daughter. Although this was his first TT he was an experienced competitor at events in Scandinavia.

Investigations are continuing into the circumstances and the Coroner of Inquests has been informed. Sympathy is extended to Mr.Karlsson’s family and friends.
