Dan Linfoot Injury

Dan Linfoot has been ruled out of action for the next month after breaking his wrist in a crash at Brands Hatch.

The Honda Racing team released a statement today which confirmed that Linfoot had broken his left scaphoid following the accident. Linfoot was thought to have fractured his left scaphoid in the crash, but the amount of swelling made it difficult to diagnose the severity of the break at that time.

The crash itself took place at Westfield during the opening race of the day. The Yorkshireman received medical attention at the track and was immediately ruled out of race two.

The injury will now rule Linfoot out of the next two race meetings, at Thruxton and Cadwell Park, as he goes through treatment and recovery. Linfoot will also miss the Suzuka Eight Hour event this weekend.

Within the statement, the team thanked the Racesafe marshals and the BSB medical team for their assistance. The team also said that they are now looking into their options with regards to replacing Linfoot at the next two British Superbike events.
