HRC’s Iker Lecuona has been rued out of any further WorldSBK action this weekend after a crash in Mandalika.

The Spaniard crashed at turn four and required trackside assistance before being taken to the RSUD NTB Mataram Hospital with a lower back contusion.

Following CT and MRI scans, doctors have diagnosed a stable fracture of the T12 vertebra with no neurological damage, as well as a fracture to the left side of the sacrum.

With no need for stabilization surgery, Lecuona has already been discharged from the hospital and will now rest and begin conservative treatment.

It was the second red flag of the session, the first coming after Hafizh Syahrin suffered a highside at turn eight, his MIE Honda left stricken in the middle of the track with 38 minutes left on the clock. He has been declared fit with just a hurty chin.
