VALE PAUL DOBBS

It is with the deepest regret and sadness that we report that popular New Zealand road-racer Paul Dobbs has died as a result of injuries sustained in an accident at the Isle of Man TT.
In a statement published on the TT website event officials said that Dobbs, 39, was involved in a racing incident in the Supersport TT on the Ballagarey section of the 61km track on Thursday local time.
A regular at the TT, Dobbs, from Onewhero in the Waikato, finished 22nd in Monday's first Supersport race.
