Shaun Simpson suspected he had broken his right hand yesterday and now team manger Dickie Dye has confirmed today that the Scot was correct in his initial fears in a press release:

IN THE MX1 MOTO-1, DISASTER STRUCK ON THE HIGH-SPEED FIRST TURN, WITH SHAUN SIMPSON CATCHING THE FENCING WITH HIS RIGHT HAND, CAUSING A MASSIVE, MULTI-BIKE PILE-UP WHICH CARRIED RIDERS INTO THE TREES ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE TRACK. THE RACE WAS IMMEDIATELY STOPPED AND RYAN HOUGHTON REQUIRED THE AIR AMBULANCE, WHICH DELAYED THE RESTART BY OVER AN HOUR.(RYAN HAS SOME BROKEN BONES BUT IS RELATIVELY OK AND WILL MAKE A FULL RECOVERY). SIMMO`S RIGHT HAND WAS BADLY DAMAGED (NOW KNOWN TO BE FRACTURED) BUT WE ASSESSED THE INJURY AND MADE A DAMAGE LIMITATION DECISION (AS CHAMPIONSHIP LEADER), TAPING UP HIS BROKEN HAND, TO GO FOR SOME POINTS. SHAUN TOUGHED IT OUT FOR A 7-4 – P4 OVERALL RESULT AND ALTHOUGH WE LOST THE RED PLATE, WE ARE ONLY 5 POINTS BEHIND THE NEW LEADER TOMMY SEARLE. 

It means Simpson participation in the next three Grand Prix is uncertain with the press release adding:

UNSURE ABOUT THE NEXT FEW GRAND PRIX (DUE TO THE SS INJURY), WE WILL UPDATE YOU ONCE DECISIONS HAVE BEEN MADE REGARDING SHAUN`S GP SCHEDULE OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS BUT THE NEXT UK MAXXIS OUTING WILL BE AT DESERTMARTIN AT THE END OF THIS MONTH…
