More tributes to Wayne Hamilton

A Northern Ireland motorcylist killed in an accident during the Manx Grand Prix yesterday (Monday) has been described as an 'up and coming superstar'.

Wayne Hamilton from Portadown died after a crash in the Junior race, less than 48 hours after winning the event's opening Newcomers race.

Eleven-times TT winner Phil McCallen, who is on the Island watching the MGP with Hamilton's father, believes the 20-year-old was destined for bigger things (first part of audio file):

Phil McCallen was speaking to Ulster TV.

It's been a tough week for road racing, with the death of Neil Kent earlier in the MGP meeting and the loss of two more riders at other meetings.
