Honda Racing’s Guy Martin escaped with just a bruised wrist after crashing at Doran’s on lap one of today’s Superbike TT.

The TV star reported that he hit a false neutral which caused him to run up the kerb and then tumble off but his injuries are minor.

We were looking forward to the Superbike race, but unfortunately we didn’t make it to the first sector. Guy has told us he hit a false neutral at Doran’s, which caused him to run up the curb and then come down. He’s hurt his wrist a little, but he’s fine and nothing serious, it’s just bruised,” said team boss Johnny Twelvetrees.

“He’s understandably shaken as it’s a very fast corner, but the main thing is that he’s OK. He decided to sit out of the TT Zero practice this evening just to rest his wrist and get some ice on it. It’s a shame that we didn’t get the six laps, as we need the track time and the data but, he’ll get nine laps in before the Senior on Friday, which with the lack of track time to date, is very welcomed.

“He’s got two Supersport races, the TT Zero and a one-lap Senior practice – so they will all be crucial. He’s upping his pace in each session and making solid progress, so we now have to wait for the final race, the Senior TT, which we are all looking forward to.”
