Corser a doubt for Misano round

Though he avoided serious injury, Troy Corser admits he is feeling sore following his high-side during Q1 at Misano.
Troy Corser could be forced to miss the sixth round of the 2011 World Superbike Championship after hurting himself in a vicious accident during first qualification.

The BMW rider high-sided coming out of Quercia corner with three minutes of the session remaining, prompting it to be red flagged.

Taken to Clinica Mobile for X-rays, though Corser came away from the accident without any broken bones, the Australian will nonetheless undergo further tests ahead of Q2 and Superpole tomorrow before deciding whether to participate in the remainder of the race weekend.

“Coming out Quercia corner, I was highsided and took a heavy fall. It was on the second lap on the tyre, but I don't know if that was a contributory factor or not and we will have to look at the telemetry to see what went on.

“All I know is that I am pretty sore. I took a hit to the back of my neck and also my right hip and for sure I'm going to be pretty second-hand tonight. I don't know how it's all going to feel in the morning, but I'll have another medical check and then we'll decide if I am fit enough to take part tomorrow.

“It's a real shame because things had gone pretty reasonably today and I was happy enough with fifth on day one. Now we'll have to see what happens tomorrow morning and how I feel.

Despite missing the final portion of the session, Corser – who was on pole position at Misano twelve months ago - was still fifth fastest.

Yes that's racing. a bit of bad luck for T.C. good to see Troy was doing competitive times on the Bimmer. Great ride again from Tom Sykes. The entire field is quite close, even Vermeulen is only one and three quarters of a second off the pace. no doubt Lorenzo Lanzi will be a bit closer by Sunday arvo. Hoping for a good race, Ayrton Badovini for a surprise result. Go 86. Remember Ducati3Dave
