Dave Brook’s 2017 Thundersport GP1 campaign has come to an end after a “scruffy move” by another rider caused a nasty crash at Anglesey today.

After a strong start at Anglesey, Brook was forced to the floor and sustained several fractures to his leg after another rider left Brook with “nowhere to go”. After advice from his medical team, Brook called time on his 2017 championship bid and is looking ahead to getting back to full fitness ready for the 2018 championship.

Brooky said of the incident: “I’m absolutely gutted… it’s a really bitter pill to swallow that my season has been taken away from me by another rider’s poor judgement – it was a scruffy move, definitely not an overtake.”

Ever the optimist, he added “I love riding my bike so yes I’ll be back. When remains to be seen…”.
