Turn two spill brings early end to 2nd day of testing for Crutchlow

Cal Crutchlow and his LCR Honda CASTROL crew had been working tirelessly to improve his sensations with his factory RC213V Honda when he suffered a crash at the infamous turn two left-hander. His subsequent injuries and pain in his arms meant he and the team decided to call a halt to their work for the evening.

#35 Cal Crutchlow – 21st (1’56.178 – lap 26 of 27)

“After 27 laps today, unfortunately I crashed at turn two and have a haematoma on my right forearm and abrasions to both arms. As such, we decided to stop the test today because I’m in a fair amount of pain. At the time I was unable to move my fingers because the swelling was so significant straight away. Since then we’ve been mainly trying to reduce the swelling in the right forearm and stop it from getting worse. Hopefully with some rest we can see if we are able to participate in the final day of testing tomorrow”.
