British Superbike rider Ben Godfrey has died after colliding with another motorcyclist at Donington Park.
The 25-year-old crashed during a No Limits Trackday at the Leicestershire circuit on Sunday and died shortly afterwards.
The company said Godfrey collided with the other rider on the approach to Redgate corner and “fell from his machine” during the “second advanced group session”.
The statement released by the company reads:
“During the second advanced group session of our No Limits Trackday today at Donington Park, Ben Godfrey collided with another bike on the approach to Redgate and fell from his machine.
“Tragically he suffered serious injuries and despite immediate medical assistance trackside, he succumbed to his injuries shortly after.”
Mark Neate, the owner of No Limits Trackdays paid tribute to Godfrey, saying:
“I am so desperately sad that Ben died from the injuries he sustained.
“Ben really was a fantastic young man and friends with so many people in the paddock, he was always smiling and had time for everyone.
“He was very excited for the start of the season and had taken part in many trackdays in the last month.
“Our thoughts are with his family, his partner Jordan and his team-mates and friends.”
Fellow British Superbike rider Glenn Irwin also paid tribute to Godfrey, writing on Twitter: ‘Rest in peace Ben Godfrey. King of the Dutch Superbike race at Assen.’
