Isle of Man TT: German fan died from 'blunt-force trauma'
A German TT fan died from "massive blunt-force trauma" after his motorbike was involved in a head-on collision with a car, an inquest has heard.
Ralf Zilske, 52, died after the crash on the Ballaugh to Jurby coast road on 3 June at about 21:50 BST.
Police said Mr Zilske, a painter and decorator from Kiel, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Coroner John Needham said he died from blunt-force trauma "primarily to his upper thorax and abdomen".
Mr Needham adjourned the inquest, at Douglas Court House, to a date yet to be fixed.
