Brno Superbike: Troy Corser Crash & Injury

Crash Update

BMW World Superbike rider, Troy Corser, will not race in Brno after his heavy crash during Friday’s Qualifying Practice session. After discussions with the team doctor, Dr. Vincenzo Tota, and the team management, Troy decided not to compete in the FIM Superbike World Championship sessions on Saturday and the races on Sunday.

According to medical reports, the 38-years-old rider suffered bruising all over his body. While both riders, Ruben Xaus and Corser, started the weekend well, Troy crashed heavily on his final lap of Qualifying Practice 1. Initial medical reports confirm he has no serious injuries. He was taken to the hospital in Brno for further precautionary checks.

Troy Corser says: "Unfortunately I cannot race this weekend. I feel quite exhausted right now, and I have a pain in my chest. It was a huge impact, and I am happy I was not hurt badly. I remember the crash pretty well: I somehow lost the rear, and then I highsided. I would have loved to race in Brno, but we all agree I need a couple of days to rest now to be able to start in Silverstone."

Berthold Hauser (BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director) says: "First of all, we all are more than happy Troy is okay so far and not more seriously hurt after his heavy crash. The bike somehow hit him and the impact was severe. According to Dr. Vincenzo Tota, Troy was thoroughly checked in the hospital."

"His injuries seem to be limited to several bruises, but he will need some time to recover over the next couple of days. We agreed unanimously it would be too risky to send him out racing here, although he is able to leave the hospital. Of course, we all feel sorry for Troy and it is a shame he cannot compete this weekend. We now hope he will be 100 per cent fit for the next race weekend in Silverstone."

Davide Tardozzi says: "Most important is the news that Troy is not badly injured. We all feel sorry for him, and we hope that he will be okay as soon as possible. This is the only thing we are concerned about."

Ruben Xaus says: "More than anything else I hope Troy is okay."

Troy Corser’s fastest laps at Brno on the BMW S 1000 RR superbike occurred during Free Practice with a time of 2:00.580 min (4th) and Qualifying with a time of 1: 2:00.508 min (12th).
