Andrews to race on despite scare.

Simon Andrews is battling on at Knockhill this weekend despite almost crashing during free practice for the latest round of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship.

Racing on despite the injuries that prevented him from taking up his World Superbike wild-card at Brands Hatch last week, Andrews has already shown top ten pace in practice to belie the fact he has a heavily bandaged leg and wrist.

However, he very nearly added to his woes when he suffered a highside in second free practice. While he stayed on the bike, Andrews hurt his wrist again as he came back down on the Lloyds Jentin Yamaha.

Sitting out the rest of the session as a precaution, Andrews is nonetheless determined to continue on despite his injuries.

"I had a bit of a small highside in that second session and it put pressure on my wrist," he told the British Superbike website. "I decided not to finish the session and give it a bit of a rest so I can get back out again tomorrow. It is a bit sore but hopefully I can get back out there tomorrow.”

Knockhill has been a tough weekend for several riders already, with John Laverty and Stuart Easton having withdrawn with injury problems.
