Czech rider Karel Abraham will not be riding in the race at the Circuit of The Americas in Texas, as a result of a broken collarbone he sustained in an incident in Saturday’s Q1.
Abraham made a mistake braking into turn 15, causing a collision between himself and Gresini CRT rider, Bryan Staring. He was taken to the mobile medical clinic at the circuit where a dislocation of the broken left collarbone was diagnosed.
He was taken to the local hospital for surgery, following which, his recovery will take a few weeks.
Aussie Bryan Staring was left unhurt in the crash but described the incident as unhelpful in his progress at the Texan circuit. He will start tomorrow’s race in 22nd ahead of Ioda rider, Lukas Pezek, and wildcarding Attack Performance rider, Blake Young.
