Glasgow meeting abandoned
Tonight’s SG Petch Bears meeting against Glasgow was abandoned after 9 heats, following a massive crash involving Redcar’s Coty Garcia and Glasgow’s Richard Lawson. Lawson took heavy fall into the airfence, but unfortunately momentum took Coty over the airfence and almost into the crowd on the second bend.
Miraculously, both riders managed to get up and walk away, although once he returned to the pits and the adrenaline wore off Garcia was in a lot of discomfort and the paramedics wanted to ensure he was ok. This did mean that the curfew was reached before the re-run of heat 10 could take place. At the time of the abandonment, the Bears trailed by 32-24 – and as the meeting had not got past heat 10 the result will not stand and will have to be re-ran.
The best wishes of everyone at Redcar go to Coty Garcia and Richard Lawson, we will bring you any more information when we have it.
