It is with great sadness, we need to make the following announcement.

James Goddard, one of the competitors in the Auto Cycle Union event on Saturday collapsed in the top paddock, after completing his timed run on Saturday afternoon.

Our paddock marshals, onsite doctor and paramedics dealt with the incident until ambulances, an NHS doctor and the Air Ambulance arrived. James was taken to Salisbury hospital where sadly he died later on Saturday evening.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and fellow competitors.

As a mark of respect a one minute silence took place at the beginning of the meeting on Sunday morning.
