Newly crowned Bell Helmets Amateur Sport Bike Canadian National Champion Tomas Casas of Peterborough, ON, will not be able to attend the Red Bull Rookies 2015 Grand Prix selection event at the Guadix Circuit in Granada, Spain. October 14-16, as previously planned. The teenager was injured at Shannonville Motorsport Park last weekend, when he crashed while running in fourth position in his first career Pro race start in Dunlop 600 Sport Bike, during RACE Superseries action on Sunday, September 28.
Casas fell from his OCM Racing/Peterborough Cycle Salvage Yamaha YZF-R6 exiting the turn ten hairpin, and the race was stopped so that he could be attended to. It turned out that Casas suffered a broken and dislocated left wrist and a badly bruised right knee.
