Ben Gautrey died today at a crash at British Superbikes Championship at Cadwell Sad

An 18-year-old rider has died after a collision at the British Superbikes Championship meeting in Lincolnshire.

Ben Gautrey fell on the first lap of the Metzeler National Superstock 600 race at Cadwell Park.

After initially being treated on the track, the Southport rider was taken by air ambulance to hospital where he died from head and chest injuries.

Several riders, who were also involved, were uninjured. Race organisers said it was a "tragic and freak accident".

The race was immediately stopped.

That is very sad to hear Sad . Car racing can be scary at times, but bike racers have to contend with dangers that car racing drivers are often cushioned from - full respect to especially the riders who race on tracks where run off areas are dodgy.

I was at Cadwell yesterday, i saw the end of the incident, with other riders falling taking avoiding action. Second time i've been at Cadwell when there's been a fatality, was there in 05 when Chris Jones died.
Not been a good weekend for motorsport, in addition to the bikers killed, a driver also died at York Raceway in his Ford Cortina and karting legend Martin Hines oassed away from cancer. RIP to all of them.
