Tragic year for Top Gun Racing

It is with great sorrow that OBM reports the passing of popular and gifted road racer Dan Hegarty following an incident at the Macau Grand Prix.

During his racing career Dan, who rode for Top Gun Racing and came from Bingham, Notts, became one of the elite group of racers to lap the 4.25 Southern 100 Billown circuit on the Isle of Man at more than 110mph.

It’s been a tragic year for Top Gun Racing, as Dan’s team-mate Gavin Lupton also succumbed to injuries sustained at the Ulster Grand Prix earlier in the season.

Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Dan’s wife Lucy and their two sons.
