Guy Martin ruled out of UGP after crash

The Tyco BMW rider crashed out of the Dundrod 150 Superbike race whilst leading

TYCO BMW's Guy Martin will not be taking part in Saturday's Ulster Grand Prix after crashing out of the Dundrod 150 Superbike race yesterday.

Martin crashed out of the Dundrod 150 Superbike race at Ireland's corner whilst leading on Thursday. Medics attended to the Lincolnshire rider immediately where his injuries weren't thought to be substantial, but subsequent scans revealed a broken vertebrae, ribs and sternum.

Due to his injuries, Martin will not take any further part in this year's Ulster Grand Prix as he will remain in Belfast hospital for the next few days.

"Most importantly our thoughts are with Guy at this point in time, and although it is a real shame he will not be racing on Saturday – thankfully he will recover from his injuries and be up on his feet in a few days. As a matter of fact he is already talking about work on Monday!," explained Team Manager Philip Neill.

“Guy was feeling really comfortable on the BMW Motorrad machinery this week, and his double pole position and a best lap of 133.176mph during last night’s Dundrod 150 race, confirmed to us that he had a great chance of adding to his impressive tally around Dundrod.”

“Guy was well aware that Bruce Anstey wasn’t that far behind and was eager to get a good run out of Ireland’s Corner to set him up for his favourite part of the track. Unfortunately he got caught out by the high-side, which has ended his Ulster Grand Prix for 2015, but full credit must go to the organisers for the improved safety measures at the circuit.”

Despite being one rider down, Martin's team-mate William Dunlop will be looking to put the BMWS1000RR on the podium to finish the Tyco BMW's international road racing season.
