Irish rider Laverty crashed in Warm Up for the Yamaha Finance Australian Round and will not take part in Sunday’s track action

After a crash at Turn 10 at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, Eugene Laverty (BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team) will miss the rest of the Yamaha Finance Australia Round. Laverty crashed on his own during Warm Up. Laverty joins Garrett Gerloff (GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Junior Team) and Leon Camier (Barni Racing Team) on the sidelines through injury.

The 33-year-old was taken to the Medical Centre shortly after the incident where he was diagnosed with concussion. Laverty had qualified for Race 1 in 13th on the grid following the Tissot Superpole session and converted this into an 11th place finish as he finished two places behind teammate Tom Sykes, who had started from pole position and initially led the race.
