IoM TT: Guy Martin Crash Tweet Update

IoM TT Report

Maric Thorpe, Accident and Emergency consultant at Noble’s Hospital in the Isle of Man has issued a statement on the condition of Guy Martin, who crashed on lap three of the Senior TT.

The statement said: “I’m pleased to say that Guy Martin has been talking to us throughout his treatment in A&E at Noble’s Hospital. He has bruising to both lungs and some minor fractures in his upper spine, but is otherwise well.”

“We expect him to be in hospital for a few days.”

“Guy asked me to pass on his thanks to his fans for all their support – and tell them that this has nothing to do with lack of commitment from him!”

Crash Report

The Senior TT is due to re-start at 3pm and be run over four laps, it has been confirmed.

The race was red flagged after two laps following an incident involving the number 8 Honda machine of Guy Martin in the Ballagarey area.

Martin had been leading at the end of lap two heading into the pits.

An official announcement said Martin had been conscious throughout the incident and was being taken to hospital by helicopter with chest injuries.

His motorcycle was reported to be on fire, and the race had to be red-flagged so a fire engine could attend. It was announced at 2pm that the fire engines had left the course and work to replace safety equipment was under way.
