The organisers of the Isle of Man TT have confirmed that Roger and Bradley Stockton, a father-and-son duo from Crewe, were both killed following an incident at Ago’s Leap on the final lap of Friday’s second Sidecar TT.
It was the same location that resulted in the death of sidecar driver Cesar Chanal and left his passenger Olivier Lavorel critically injured during Saturday’s opening race.
“Roger was an experienced TT competitor,” the statement said, “with today’s race marking his 20th TT race start.
“He competed at the TT regularly from 2000 to 2008, before then returning in 2010, 2017 and at this year’s event. In his career, he claimed a total of 12 top-20 finishes and four top-10 finishes, as well as 10 Bronze Replicas.
“Bradley was a newcomer to the TT and finished his first TT race on Monday, securing an impressive eighth-place finish alongside his father.
“2022 was their fifth season racing together, and Roger and Bradley were regular podium finishers and frontrunners in the British F2 Sidecar Cup Championship, finishing second in the championship in 2021.”
The Race joins the wider racing fraternity at this time in wishing our deepest condolences to the Stockton family, Roger’s and Bradley’s friends and their team.
