Japanese 250 GP rider Taro Sekiguchi has been taken out of intensive care as he continues to make good progress following his horrific crash during last weekend’s Czech Republic GP in Brno.

The Aprilia rider suffered multiple injuries in a warm-up crash when he smashed into Marco Simoncelli’s Gilera machine after the Italian had crashed seconds earlier.

Taro Sekiguchi remains in the Brno University Hospital but was moved out of intensive care yesterday (Thursday).

Sekiguchi will remain in hospital for further treatment on a lung injury, but he has told his Campetella Racing team that he has no memory of the incident apart from braking hard to try and miss Marco Simoncelli’s crashed machine.

Taro Sekiguchi has a damaged left lung, four broken ribs, a broken pelvis and left hip. Doctors expect him to make a full recovery.
