Davey Todd has been released from hospital following his crash in yesterday’s sole Superbike race at the 2018 Ulster Grand Prix.

The race was red flagged when Todd crashed his Burrows Engineering Suzuki at the Deers Leap part of the circuit when he was caught out by the increasing winds.

Earlier in the day Todd brought his BE Suzuki home in fourth place in the Superstock Race, the win awarded to Dean Harrison after it was cut short due to another red flag incident.

Team boss John Burrows told a local newspaper: “Davey has been released from hospital today. He’s a lucky boy, because the Deer’s Leap is not somewhere you want to come off.

“We had a worrying time as a team waiting on news to come through about Davey, but thankfully he is okay. He can remember everything about the crash and Davey told me he didn’t do anything different from any other time: he hit his marker and braking point, but when he tipped into the top of the Deer’s Leap, the wind caught him and he couldn’t peel into the corner.

“The main thing is that Davey is fine and our next race with him now will be the last Irish National at Killalane in September. We will maybe try and do a track day at Kirkistown before then but we’ve a bit of a break now as a team.”
