The 31-year-old Brit crashed against the track walls on the street circuit in Macau.

The Macau GP race was won by Glenn Irwin, with the result being declared after five laps. The race was red-flagged immediately and was not restarted.

A statement from the organisers said: "Daniel's family and team have been contacted, and the Committee will ensure every assistance is extended to them".

It also added to Irwin's North West 200 Superbike race victory and maiden BSB win this season and was PBM's fourth Macau Grand Prix victory. It is with great regret that we have to announce that the British rider succumbed to his injuries en route to the Conde S. Januario Hospital.

The last fatality at the Macau Grand Prix was in 2012 when Portuguese rider Luis Carreira died during qualifying.
