Danny Webb will discover on Friday whether he is fit enough to take part in this weekend's San Marino Grand Prix at Misano. The Briton sustained the injury during practice at Indianapolis, missing the race as a result, and x-rays haven't been able to clear up whether he will be able to race this weekend either.
Webb has suffered heavy swelling as well as a possible fracture but will at least ride in Friday practice to assess his physical condition.
“I really want to race, because the bike's going really well. I was at hospital late on Tuesday night getting an X-ray and assessment. The doctors don't think it's broken, but there may be a small fracture. There is some muscle damage, but I'm keen to ride and so will travel to Misano and hope for the best.”
Mahindra will definitely have at least one representative at Misano though with Marcel Schrotter riding the second GP125. The German teenager crashed on the final lap in Indianapolis, losing a possible points finish, and is hoping to put that behind him.
“I am looking forward to this race a lot after the disappointment at Indy. The whole weekend there went pretty well … right up to the last lap. But that's racing. The Misano circuit has some interesting sections, and last year I was two places out of the points. This year should be different.”
The GP Aperol di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini weekend gets underway with Free Practice 1 at 8:15am UK time on Friday in what is likely to be an important session for the Indian team. As ever, The Checkered Flag will have full coverage throughout the weekend.
