Hofmann Highsides, Breaks Arm At Vallelunga

Californian Peter Hofmann highsided and broke his arm during qualifying for yesterday's European Championship 125cc Grand Prix race at Vallelunga, in his YACCO Team Raudies debut weekend.<BR><BR>"I highsided yesterday during qualifying at Vallelunga and broke my left arm in two places," wrote Hofmann in an e-mail to Roadracing World. "Am flying to the States tomorrow morning (Monday) to see my doctor. Will try to make next round at Hungaroring in four weeks. I'll write a report on the Pannonia Ring test and Vallelunga when I get back, but wanted to give you the latest. Jason DiSalvo qualified a respectable 19th on his 250 after falling in practice. I don't know how the race turned out."<BR><BR>Autodromo Vallelunga is located 20 miles north of Rome, Italy.
