MCN Competition winners GSX-R Trophy crash sequence

Published: 22 August 2008

Colt Dwyer, the lucky winner of a season of riding in the Suzuki GSX-R Trophy thanks to Suzuki and MCN, had a bit of a nasty tumble at Castle Combe last weekend, and here’s the sequence.

Dwyer, who was selected by John Reynolds from a mass of hopefuls who entered the competition to win a season of racing in the single make series, succumbed to rain fall at the Wiltshire circuit crashing heavily on lap six along with two other riders.

Dwyer said: "I was in sixth place and chasing fifth, I could see the guys in front slowing up but I still had plenty of grip at that point and there were no spots on my visor. It wasn't until I tipped into the last turn that I realised how wet it was and down I went. My bike isn't in great shape but I'll do my best to be on track at Oulton Park."

Chris Hawkes went on to win the race from a re-start after the three riders hit the deck and closes the gap on championship leader Stanley Gable who took third at Castle Combe.

The next round of the championship takes place on August 30-31 at Oulton Park.
