Isle of Man TT: another big name goes

IoM TT, afternoon practice, Thurs 29th May:

David Jefferies killed and Jim Moodie seriously injured in accident during practice, near the village of Crosby.

Jefferies, riding for the TAS Suzuki team, had entered four races and was gunning for his fourth consecutive treble.

Sad news.

Looks as though Jim is not as badly hurt as first thought, good news. David was an all rounder and will be missed

what sad news...

I read on the MCN site that Jim Moodie ran into cables from a telegraph pole that was somehow involved in Jefferies crash. That sort of indicates the magnitude of the accident, but what can they do about it? with so many walls, gateways etc they cant protect the entire island.

I agree, as sad as this is, all the riders know the risks, and accept that they could pay the ultimate price. The event has as much history as Indianapolis, and i think (as it should) it will be here for a while.

Jeffries was a real star on the TT course, in 2000, of the six TT races, he won 3 and Joey Dunlop won the other 3, 2 of the very best TT riders dominated that week, showing how good they both were. A shame neither of them are any longer with us.

A very sad day.
Having got to know DJ over the winter at the Supermoto meetings that our club ran, I feel I've lost a friend if there is any consolation though it is hard to find then DJ died doing what he loved.
A great character and a great lose to motorcycle racing RIP DJ.

I saw this item on Teletex and I must admit I was shocked. He will be missed. A top ambassader for the sport now gone forever. Rest in peace David.
