Statement issued on behalf of Motorclub Imatra and Finnish Motorcycle Federation
Yesterday June 15th, 2019 the Swiss rider Mathias Gnägi, 42, has deceased following an accident.
The incident occurred on the sixth lap of the IRRC Superbike race. The Gnägi lost control of his motorbike during the wet race, crashed and was driven off the track. The accident happened on a straight part of the track and no other riders were involved. The race was stopped immediately following the incident. An ambulance and a doctor were in place swiftly and Gnägi was immediately transferred to a nearby central hospital. Despite their best efforts, Gnägi died in the hospital.
The organizer of the event, Motorclub Imatra, and Finnish Motorcycle Federation offer their deepest condolences to the Mathias Gnägi’s family and friends.
The Finnish Motorcycle Federation has established an investigative board. The authorities were notified immediately after the incident and the police will conduct their own investigation on the incident.
On Sunday Imatranajo will continue as scheduled.
