Road Racing

Paul Bird Motorsport rider Glenn Irwin was declared the victor of the Sun City Group Macau Grand Prix 51st Edition following a red flag on the sixth lap of the 12-lap race.

Saturday's Motorcycle Grand Prix was won by Northern Ireland's Glenn Irwin - after five completed laps - in front of Peter Hickman and Michael Rutter.

"The Macau Grand Prix Organising Committee extends its deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Daniel", the organisers said in a statement.

He added: "It's a very sad end to what has been a successful week".

He died on his way to the hospital.

Sport confirms that motorcyclist Daniel Hegarty has died after hitting the barrier at the Macau Grand Prix.

While the race was immediately red-flagged, nothing could be done to save Hegarty who died on the way to hospital.

The last fatality at the Macau Grand Prix was in 2012 when Portuguese rider Luis Carreira died during qualifying.

Hegarty's girlfriend Lucy Draycott said she had lost "the love of my life".

The race was redflagged once the severity of Hegarty's condition was known.

"I just need time to take in what has happened and would appreciate if people could just be patient with me and wait for contact".

Macau, in southern China, has been hosting the street race for cars and motorbikes since 1954.

In a statement, BMW Motorrad Motorsport said that it "would like to express its honest condolences to Hegarty's family, friends and team at this hard time".
