Luca Casadei's race ended abruptly after a few 100 metres on the Monza track (Renault Clio International Challenge's second round) this weekend. After a good start in 6th place, Luca immediately move up on position. But while Luca was taking on the first corner, Scalera's car # 45 hit him head on.
This is very questionable behaviour on behalf of the Scuderia La Torre's driver that jeopardized the race for the young driver from Forli.
The impact of this collision caused serious damage to the car and to Luca. In fact, after 2 laps The race car drover was forced to retire for two reasons: an aching wrist and a damaged car. During the crash, Luca violently banged his right wrist in the cockpit. However, the doctors at the circuit examined Luca after the accident and stated that his wrist was severely sprained but not broken.
In the end, nothing serious even if this afternoon's medical exam at the hospital can only exclude the risk of micro-fractures in his wrists.
If the doctors give the driver positive results, Luca will be able to participate in the test session scheduled on June 30th on the Misano track!
"After the collision, I thought for a second that I had broken my wrist. The pain was excruciating and this stopped me from continuing the race. The car was also pretty damaged and so I wouldn't have been able to finish the race anyway. I just don't understand Scalera's behaviour. He was definitely thinking of something else instead of racing. Thanks to him, my race ended at the first corner when I was in 5th place. In just a few metres, all the work done this weekend by my team and I went in vain. I now hope that whatever happened at this race isn't ignored and that the organization will take the right measures to prevent this from happening again."
