Isle of Man TT riders died from 'multiple injuries'
Two Isle of Man TT racers killed in separate crashes during this year's event both died from "multiple injuries", inquests have heard.
Sidecar driver Dwight Beare, 27 from Melbourne, Australia, died after crashing near the 16th milestone during the opening race on 4 June.
Paul Shoesmith, 50, and of Cheshire, died in a crash on the Sulby Straight during a practice session the same day.
The inquests of both men have been adjourned until a date to be fixed.
Coroner John Needham said the cause of death was "severe blunt trauma" in both cases.
The inquests also heard that Mr Beare, a carpenter living in Onchan, Isle of Man, died from injuries "particularly to his neck", while Mr Shoesmith died from "multiple injuries".
