Camier didn't look too good. Almost like run over or hit by Savadori and Fores

Yes it was one of those incidents you dont like to see. Hopefully a good outcome. :fingers:

We are now getting ready for a restart from original grid positions from what I heard. Hopefully Melandri gets a better start this time.
Surprised to see Savadori make the restart.

Quite a good race.
Davies did really well from 11th although I believe without the red flag he had it for more

Well that was fun. Shame the Ducatis of Davies Fores and Melandri were battling so hard for 2nd that Rea got the jump on them and pulled away for the win.
Great battle going on for 8th -12th or so!

Good news is that Camier seems to have been cleared of major injuries and has gone to hospital for observation and further tests.

Thanks for the update on Camier. Just watching the WSSP 600 race now though I missed the start and a few laps. Just switched over in time to see Krummenacher drop it.

Cortese first German to win a WSS race since days of Christian Kellner and Jörg Teuchert. Kellner took the victory at Sugo back in 2003.
Really such a long time ago already? Man, time flies by at lightning speed. I remember this time very well because of the very early Sunday alarm at like 2am because I loved these circuits so much

Quite an interesting race but the Kawa still seems to have some extra legs towards the end of the race but Mikkey van der Mark looked quite good so there's hope for tomorrow
