Very sad news. Hope he fully recovers soon. So ironic too that racers are injured (and sometimes killed) in road vehicle accidents. Randy Mamola was seriously hurt in a scooter accident in Spain shortly after he retired from GP racing and of course I'm sure we all remember the tragic loss of Norick Abe a few years ago (also on a scooter)when a delivery van driver made an illegal turn in fronot of him in Japan.

Get well Wilairot.

I think this year has been a pretty good reminder to us that motorcycles for all the glory, good times, and entertainment that they bring, will also take the people we consider to be our heroes from us without a second thought, on or off track. Hopefully everyone's a little more appreciative of these guys(kids), even the ones not on the podium.. last time I checked their lives are on the line too even when they're "outside of the points.."
