TT crash has ended 2010 season for Conor cummins

The race had to be re-started after, on lap three of the original six-lap Senior, Wilson Craig Honda rider Guy Martin crashed heavily at Ballagarey. His bike burst into flames, bringing out the red flag so fire engines could attend.

Despite initial fears for Martin, the popular racer was reported to be conscious and talking at the scene and was airlifted to hospital with chest injuries and minor fractures to his upper spine.
It has now been confirmed he is due to leave Noble's Hospital in the Isle of Man today or tomorrow.

Karsten Schmidt, who crashed during the first Supersport race, has been moved to a hospital in his native Germany. Sidecar passenger Joseph Shardlow remains in hospital, where his condition is described as comfortable and improving, while Pete Alton requires further treatment on a leg injury.

So glad to hear that Conor is relatively ok and will be on the mend.But have to say i am disappointed in Crash's coverage of his crash and subsequent condition.Had to search various sites to find out how he was.But nice to see that Crash have got their priorities right and report on the highly important issues such as a poll to see who we think will win this years MotoGP Cahmpionship......

I don't think you can hold crash at fault because the tt organisers and isle of man hospital have refused to issue any information until today - as you said, you had to search for information, that's because there was none available. Would it have been better for crash to speculate and get it wrong, just so you could drool over the salacious detail of inaccurate information?
