Isle of Man TT update - Yoshinari Matsushita

Posted: 28 May 2013

The Bike Social team would like to pass on our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Yoshinari Matsushita, who was killed during the qualifying session at the 2013 Isle of Man TT Races in an incident at Ballacrye in the north of the island.

Forty-three-year-old Yoshinari from Saitama in Japan was an experienced racer who first competed at the TT Races in 2009. As well as competing regularly in the Superstock and Superbike classes he also finished fifth in the 2011 TT Zero for electric bikes. He was also 2008 Motegi Endurance race winner.

Our thoughts are with all who knew him.
