Corser, Fabrizio shrug off qualifying clash

Pole man Corser and Fabrizio come together after Superpole at Misano - causing the latter to crash...
Troy Corser and Michel Fabrizio have played down the collision that saw Fabrizio come off his bike at the end of World Superbike qualifying at Misano.

Coming after the chequered flag had dropped to signify the end of the session, the pair made contact on their warm-down lap, forcing Fabrizio to crash his Ducati Xerox.

With Corser insisting the Italian was at fault for the accident, a slightly bemused Fabrizio was nonetheless able to walk away from the incident unharmed.

“In the Superpole I was faster with the race tyre and all went well,” Fabrizio said. “It's only a shame that there was a moment of confusion after the session concluded, Corser made contact with the bike and I ended up on the ground. Anyway everything's ok.”

“[An] incident involved Michel (Fabrizio) and happened after the chequered flag, though this time it was not my fault,” Corser added. “He suddenly sat up, more or less still on line and we touched. He crashed but I stayed on the bike OK. He took a hard fall and I guess he's going to be a bit sore.”
