GINO REA TO MISS QATAR SEASON FINALE WITH BROKEN HAND FOLLOWING 100MPH COLLISION AT JEREZ

October 26, 2016

 

Gino Rea’s recent run of bad fortune has brought his 2016 World Supersport campaign to a premature conclusion following a 100mph collision with a fallen bike. The incident occurred during Friday's free practice session at last weekend's Spanish round at Jerez.  

 

Gino started the weekend strongly, running as top MV, however his progress was drastically halted when PTR rider Hikari Okubo crashed in front of him exiting the fast Ferrari turn 12. Rea had to take immediate action in order to avoid hitting Hikari, sending him into the path of the fallen bike. Gino hit the PTR machine at over 100mph catapulting him over the handlebars and into the gravel pit. Rea took a hard impact to the head before tumbling through the gravel and into the armco barrier. The Londoner was fortunate to come away with only 3 broken metacarpal bones in his left hand however will not ride at the Qatar season finale following surgery last Wednesday...
