Indy Focused On New Yamaha Adventure After Portimao
Indy Offer finished the 2021 FIM Supersport 300 World Championship watching from the sidelines after a Race 1 crash put him out of action for the rest of the weekend, through no fault of his own.
Having missed last year’s event in Portugal through injury, the #18 was racing at the Portimao Circuit for the first time, Indy spent Friday learning the circuit before improving his lap time significantly in Superpole ahead of the two thirteen lap races.
An opening lap spill cut short Race 1 on Saturday, with Indy sent to the medical centre for a precautionary check. Declared unfit after a Sunday morning check, he was forced to miss the final race of the season.
With the news announced earlier this week that he will join BR Corse in 2022, Indy will take a couple of weeks off before hitting the track with his new team.
“Qualifying went well. I was over a second faster than I had all weekend. I made a good start in Race 1 but sadly after four and a half corners I went down because of an issue that prevented me from braking properly. I couldn’t stop and unfortunately, I hit another rider and we both went down. On Sunday it was a lot cooler but after a morning medical check I was told I couldn’t ride. My ankle was swollen, and the medical team said they preferred me not to ride. It is annoying to end the year like this, but it is what it is. Now I can relax for a week or so and fully focus on the new challenge that awaits me with BR Corse and Yamaha in 2022.”
