Mick Robertson crashed at 100mph at Silverstone in qualifying at the weekend and suffered severe bruising to his elbow and back.

As well as ruined helmet, leathers and boots, the bike was badly damaged, the most serious being a broken frame.

Mick’s team worked late into the night to rebuild the bike before the race the next day. Mick started well but at half race distance water from the radiator started to spray onto his visor so for safety reasons he was forced to retire.
