This morning, at around 8.30 am, during the run at the 6th special stage of Meke (near Karapınar town of Konya), the Dutch motorcycle rider Wouter Vaarkamp racing as number 22, ran into Italian rider Mirco Miotto, number 2 and Turkish rider Kemal Merkit number 7, while they were on the race route.

As a result of this unfortunate sports accident, athletes Kemal Merkit and Wouter Vaarkamp sadly lost their lives at the scene. The slightly wounded Mirco Miotto has been given the necessary medical attention by the medical team of the organization.

Our loss and grief is great…

May our beloved Kemal and the 18-year-old Wouter, who bonded with everyone in a short time, rest in peace and our condolences to their grieving families and friends.
