Default James Cowton has died

Yorkshire's James Cowton has succumbed to injuries sustained during the 600cc Challenge Race at the Isle of Man, organisers have confirmed.

Click the image to open in full size.

Mr Cowton was involved in a four-bike collision at Stadium Corner during today’s Supersport race at the Southern 100. The incident has also left Ivan Lintin in a critical condition.

A statement from the organisers reads:
The Southern 100 MCRC, organisers of the Southern 100 International Road Races, regret to announce that following an incident involving four-competitors at Stadium Bends during the 600cc Challenge race, Driffield rider, James Cowton succumbed to his injuries.

The other riders involved, Ivan Lintin is in a critical condition, whilst Jamie Coward has shoulder injuries and Mickey Evans leg and arm injuries.

Southern 100 Racing extends it sincere condolences to family, relatives and friends of James Cowton at this very sad time.
The organisers are carrying out a full investigation in conjunction with Isle of Man Constabulary into the circumstances of the incident on behalf of the Coroner of Inquests. //added

The brutal year for road racing continues with more bad news coming from the Southern 100. Rider fatality and 2 more critical. Prayers for all concerned.
