Simon Andrews has died after a crash at the North West 200 race in Northern Ireland this past weekend.

Andrews raced in British Superbike and World Superbike, but was arguably best known for his street racing career at events like the Isle of Man TT and the Macau GP. He raced for the Honda Legends TT team in World Endurance for a stint, but was riding a BMW for the team this weekend.

Andrews crashed in Saturday’s Superstock race, and passed away Monday in hospital after succumbing to a head injury. He was 29 years old.

Canadian Dan Kruger was also racing for in the Superbike category. He moved up from 47th in qualifying to 24th in the race. William Dunlop and Michael Dunlop finished 1-2 respectively in that race, for Tyco Suzuki and BMW Motorrad respectively. Ian Hutchinson ended up in fifth, Guy Martin ended in ninth, and John McGuinness had a DNF.
