Scassa fit for Silverstone event

The ever-improving Ducati rider will not miss Silverstone after injuring his foot at Brno.
Luca Scassa will race at Silverstone despite admitting he is not 100 per cent recovered following his accident last time out at Brno.

Scassa broke his foot in an accident during the opening race around the Czech circuit, a disappointing outcome on the weekend that saw him score the best qualifying result of his career.

Obeying doctors' order to rest the foot, Scassa will be back in action at Silverstone on the Supersonic Ducati but confesses he won't be back to full fitness for the event.

"I was really disappointed to leave Brno like that, we had been going well since Friday and our superb qualifying form gave us the impression we could be up there at the front,” he said. “Unfortunately my crash ruined everything but these incidents can happen.

“For once I took the advice of the doctors and for four days I left my foot rest totally so as not to make the small fractures any worse and then some lengthy magnetic therapy sessions worked wonders, even though I won't be 100% fit at Silverstone.

“The circuit has changed and for me it's totally new, seeing as I have never raced here. I want to make amends for the misfortune of three weeks ago to score some points in the standings, me and my team still have a point to prove in this 2010 season."
