Moments of tension and absolute concern were experienced in the paddock of the MotoGP World Championship in Mugello. Jason Dupasquier, Moto3 rider, suffered a serious accident during Q2 and had to be rushed in a helicopter to a medical center in the city of Florence, Italy.
The red flag lowered a few seconds to the end of training. The Swiss driver, when he was in turn 9, lost the stability of his vehicle and fell against the pavement.
Being a blind spot, the Japanese Ayumu Sasaki, who was coming from behind, did not have time to maneuver and try to avoid the Swiss, also going to the ground when colliding with Dupasquier’s motorcycle. Another of the pilots who was involved, although without physical consequences, during the accident was the Catalan Jeremy Alcoba.
Mugello’s afternoon session was suspended for several minutes while the doctors entered the track to attend on the asphalt to the young man who is currently in tenth position in the championship with 27 points, in his second year in the World Championship with the CarXpert PruestelGP.
Although an ambulance quickly showed up, the athlete was transferred to a hospital in a helicopter.
Sasaki was also referred to a medical facility. The first checks ruled out major injuries (strong cervical blow) and he is back in his box. “It’s very good,” said the event organizers. Alcoba, meanwhile, was unharmed. However, the situation with Dupasquier continues to be very worrying and is awaited by an official part.
Before there was also another strong accident on the track. Izan Guevara suffered a very severe blow to the back, which forced him to abandon the classification on a stretcher. Luckily, after the medical check-up, it was confirmed that the Spaniard was in optimal condition to continue competing.
In terms of qualifying, Tatsuki Suzuki took his second pole position of the season at Mugello. The SIC58 Squadra Corse pilot set a new all-time record with a time of 1: 56.001, improving by one tenth the reference time Andrea Migno had set in the morning.
