Freddy Foray has confirmed he will miss the fourth round of the 2012 MCE British Superbike Championship at Snetterton after sustaining a fractured vertebra last time out at Oulton Park.

The Quattro Plant Kawasaki rider fell heavily during the final race of the weekend around the Cheshire circuit, picking up an injury to the vertebra that will keep him out for this weekend's event.

Describing the fracture as 'small', Foray is confident he will be back on the ZX-10R in time for round five at Knockhill

"I am fortunate that this fracture is small, but I will miss the race at Snetterton. I am extremely disappointed but I want to come back stronger.

"We still have eight rounds after Snetterton and I hope to be 100 per cent ready for Knockhill and we can then continue our work and get some good results."
