Kawasaki supported rider Glenn Scott unfortunately had a 'big off' in round 4 at Morgan Park Qld. Glenn’s high-speed crash aboard his K&R Hydraulics Kawasaki ZX10RR at turn 3 at Morgan Park Raceway will force himself and Team GSR Kawasaki to sit out of Round 5 at Winton Raceway this weekend. After sustaining a dislocated hip, fractures to his back in vertebrae L1,2,3,4 and separation of his C Spine, he needs more time for recovery. Glenn has said that his recovery process has been a positive one and he is on track to make a full recovery.
“I am very disappointed to be sitting out of Round 5 this weekend. The season was building nicely for us, we headed into round 4 leading the privateer championship and in a good position to continue our success on track. As a racer, we accept the dangers of racing a motorcycle at top speeds, however, I can’t help but be frustrated that a corner, with a wall so dangerously close to the track, still exists in this day and age of racing. Fortunately, I was carried off the track and still conscious but it’s extremely sad that a death is what it will take for something to be done about the ridiculous corner”. Glenn said to Kawasaki Australia.
“I have been working hard on my recovery and time is what I need to regain full fitness for my neck and back. The hip is tracking well and I have great movement thanks to the physiotherapy. No time has been set on a return, however, if the recovery continues in a positive direction we hope to be back on track this year. I’d like to thank everyone for their support at the time of the accident and a special thank you to my sponsors for standing by me through this tough time. No matter how hard the hits are, we never lose our passion to ride. My ZX10R awaits me and I can’t wait to be back in the saddle when I am ready”. - Glenn Scott
Kawasaki Australia wishes Glenn a fast and healthy recovery and hopes to see Glenn fighting fit soon.
