Team Suzuki Press Office – August 8.

Following the accident which happened last Monday at the Brno test, #joanmir will not take part in GP of Austria scheduled for Sunday August 11th.

The Team SUZUKI ECSTAR rider endured a high-speed accident last Monday, August 5th, while testing in the official IRTA session in Brno. The young Spaniard required trackside assistance before being transported to the circuit’s Medical Centre - there he was diagnosed with no major injuries, except for a pulmonary contusion that required him to transported by helicopter to the Brno Hospital. Mir underwent further checks by the doctors, who confirmed the initial diagnosis. He was kept in hospital under observation, and finally will be released.

Given his current condition, Team SUZUKI ECSTAR together with Mir decided not to take any risks, preferring to allow time for rest and recovery instead of trying to take part in the Austrian GP.
