Humangest 250cc GP rider Yuki Takahashi will miss the Suzuki 8-Hour endurance event after fracturing his left forearm during testing.
Takahashi took his second victory of 2006 at the German round of the championship at the Sachsenring, and had also won the Suzuki 300km race, partnering Ryuichi Kiyonari. Following surgery in Tokyo, he hopes to return in time for the Czech Republic Grand Prix on August 20th, 2006. The injury occurred when the Japanese rider fell during testing on a wet track.
