A close friend of tragic racer Stephen McIlvenna yesterday told how he sent him a text message on Tuesday evening asking how he had fared in the qualifying session at the Manx Grand Prix – “but there was no reply”.

The 39-year-old from Randalstown was killed during Tuesday evening’s qualifying session on the Isle of Man in an incident at the Mountain Mile.

A statement released by the Manx Motor Cycle Club, who organised the race, expressed their deepest sympathy to Stephen’s family and friends.
