STATEMENT FROM HONDA RACING AT THE NORTH WEST 200

During Superbike qualifying at the North West 200 today, Honda Racing’s John McGuinness was involved in an incident at Primrose Hill.

Within a short time of the incident John was transported by ambulance to Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast where he is currently undergoing treatment for a suspected broken right leg.

As is standard procedure following such an incident, John’s motorcycle is being held by race organisers after which time it will be released to the team.

As the team is unable to analyse John’s bike before this evening’s Superstock race, the Honda Racing team has opted to withdraw Guy Martin’s entry in today’s Superstock race as a precaution.

The Honda Racing team and John would like to thank the prompt action of the marshals, circuit staff and emergency services.
