REDDING ESCAPES INJURY DURING BLACK DAY AT MISANO

Scott Redding was lucky to escape serious injury after a huge crash in today's Moto2 race at Misano, but was left devastated by the news that fellow competitor, Shoya Tomizawa, sustained fatal injuries in the same race.

Redding was treated in the circuit medical centre immediately after the crash, receiving ten stitches in a laceration to his back. Redding's teammate, Hector Faubel, completed the race, bringing his Marc VDS liveried Suter MMX machine home in 16th position.

Everyone in the Marc VDS Racing Team would like to pass on their sincere condolences to the family and friends of Shoya Tomizawa, who will be greatly missed in the Moto2 paddock.

Michael Bartholemy: Team Manager
"Hector did a good job today in difficult circumstances. Scott's crash was a big one, so we are thankful that the only injury he sustained was a minor laceration on his back. We were deeply saddened by the news that Shoya Tomizawa succumbed to the injuries sustained in a crash during today's Moto2 race. He was a respected rival and will be sorely missed in the paddock. Like everyone in the Marc VDS Racing Team, my thoughts are with his family and friends at this time."
