An experienced and respected motorcycle racing champion has sadly died in hospital after he was seriously injured in a collision that also involved his brother during a race at the Ulster Grand Prix on Thursday.

The rider Jamie Hodson, 35, from Wigan in the UK sadly passed away in hospital late last night after he was fatally injured in an incident at the ‘Joey’s Windmill’ section of the circuit.

It is also understood that his brother Rob Hodson was involved in the same incident, but was not seriously injured.

Reports say the two men were taken to hospital after they were treated by paramedics at the scene.

The respected rider Jamie, was the reigning Manx GP Supertwins champion, and he received plaudits earlier this year after he achieved a top-10 finish in the TT Lightweight race.

Organisers of the event, the Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club, have since offered their sincere condolences to the Hodson family
