Yunus ERCELIK, Turkey (BMW S1000RR), 2:05.683 20. Loris BAZ, France (Kawasaki ZX-10R), no time recorded* * not medically cleared to ride in event More, from a press release issued by Kawasaki: Baz was one of a few high profile fallers at the previous SBK round in Germany, forcing him out of the event after a fast crash in morning warm-up. After several medical checks in the run up to the Istanbul Park race weekend the French rider headed to Turkey intent on racing. Final pre-race medical checks on his condition show evidence of a small area of damage on his D4 vertebrae, although this may be an old injury. Until further tests are done to make the situation absolutely clear all parties involved have taken the decision that Loris should take no risk, sit-out the Turkish race and continue his recovery programme. Baz is sixth in the championship rankings after round ten, having taken a race win at Silverstone and a podium of third at Assen back in April. More, from a press release issued by Team Suzuki News Service: FIXI Crescent Suzuki’s Leon Camier suffered a huge high-side in the early stages of this morning’s first free practice at Istanbul in Turkey which has led to the Englishman needing further investigations to the injuries sustained in the accident. Camier crashed at high-speed on the exit of turn-eight on the dusty, low-grip Turkish circuit and was immediately assessed at the track. The initial prognosis points towards a broken Metatarsal in his right foot, as well as other injuries to his ankle and lower leg. He is now on the way to hospital in Istanbul for in-depth examinations and scans to determine the extent of his injury. A decision on his ability to take any further part in this weekend’s proceedings will be taken once confirmation on the condition of Camier is received from the hospital. FIXI Crescent Suzuki will release any information on Camier’s well-being as soon as it is available.
