Moto2: Sofuoglu escapes punishment

"Race Direction concluded that rider Kenan Sofuoglu made every possible effort to try to avoid the collision."
Kenan Sofuoglu will not be punished for triggering the accident that left Julian Simon with a broken tibia and fibula in last Sunday's Catalan Moto2 race.

"The Race Direction yesterday met with rider Kenan Sofuoglu (TUR) and Sports Director from MAPFRE Aspar Team Gino Borsoi (ITA) to hear their explanations about the collision between rider Kenan Sofuoglu and Julián Simón (ESP) during the last week Moto2 race of the Catalan Grand Prix," read an FIM statement.

"After listening the comments of both parties and watching a video of the incident the Race Direction concluded that rider Kenan Sofuoglu made every possible effort to try to avoid the collision.

"No sanction was inflicted."

No penalty because Julian called in to the meeting and requested that Kenan not be penalized because it was a racing incident. Good mate Julian. Get well soon.
