Crutchlow still undergoing examination and in doubt for home race after crash in FP3British rider Cal Crutchlow’s participation in his home race is in doubt after he fell heavily during this morning’s final practice session.
The 26-year-old lost control of his YZR-M1 machine at the fast Chapel Curve and he suffered a heavy blow to his left foot and ankle. After initial checks in the Silverstone Circuit Medical Centre, he was transferred to hospital in Oxford for scans to determine the exact extent of the damage.
Crutchlow was unable to take part in the qualifying session but if he is declared fit to start the 20-lap race, he will be allowed to do so from the back of the grid having posted the eighth quickest time in practice yesterday.
Further updates on Crutchlow’s injuries will be made available at the earliest opportunity.
