In Memory of Wayne Hamilton

The whole road racing community was shocked and saddened by the tragic death of one of its brightest young stars, Wayne Hamilton, during the Junior Manx Grand Prix on Monday 29th August.
  Since his road racing debut at Bush in 2009, Wayne had displayed a dazzling talent that saw him taking victories in Ireland and at the Isle of Man Southern 100 races.  The opening race day of this year’s Manx Grand Prix Festival saw Wayne conquer the Mountain Course with a win in the Newcomers A Race.

On the same Monday of Wayne’s accident, our 2012 calendar was in full production at the printers.  The inclusion of an image of Wayne at the S100 takes on a special poignancy that we all feel.  The editorial decision to include Wayne in this year’s calendar, along with the likes of established stalwarts John McGuinness and Ryan Farquhar, was in recognition of the enormous potential that the young Portadown rider undoubtedly had and we believe he was set to become one of the greats of the sport.

Wayne’s family and his friends and sponsors at Emerald Road Racing have requested that in his memory, the road racing bodies that benefit from the proceeds of the calendar are to be the recipients of any donations that people may wish to make. is honoured to have been asked to facilitate this process and donations can be made via the button on this page.
All monies raised will be distributed to the Rob Vine Fund, the MGP Helicopter Fund and the S100 Helicopter Fund. It is fitting that such organisations that enable the road racing to continue will be supported, allowing other talented men and women with a passion for this incredible sport to follow in Wayne’s footsteps and fulfil their dreams.  
We thank you for your contributions in memory of this remarkable young man.
