It is with great sadness that we have learnt that Dan Kneen has died in a high speed motorbike crash at a qualifying session for the 2018 Isle of Man TT last Wednesday night. WSM Marks Bloom were sponsors of Dan for much of his career and followed his success. Last year, after signing with Penz13.com BMW, Dan achieved his first TT podium in the Superstock race, claiming third place. He has a fastest official lap of 130.347mph which he set in last year’s Superstock race, and recorded his fastest ever lap of 132.258mph (17:06.994) in last Tuesday night’s Superbike qualifying session, so all was looking set for a very successful TT for Dan this year.
The team at WSM Marks Bloom and WSM Partners express our deepest sympathy for Dan’s friends and family at this sad time.
