John McGuinness has been taken to hospital with a suspected broken leg after an off in the final Superbike qualifying session at this year’s Vauxhall International North West 200.

The Honda Racing rider came off at the high speed Primrose corner 25 minutes into this afternoon’s qualifying session while lying 12th fastest.

The session was immediately red flagged and he was tended to by trackside medics. Reported to be up and talking, the 23-time TT winner was then taken to hospital in Belfast by ambulance accompanied by wife Becky.


“What we know at the moment is John has come off, is conscious but has hurt his leg,” team manager Jonny Twelvetrees told MCN in pit lane.

“Becky has gone in the ambulance with him and they are currently on their way to hospital in Belfast and we’ll have a further update when they arrive.”
