Newcomer sustains serious injuries

A Manx Grand Prix newcomer had to be taken to hospital with serious injuries following a crash at Braddan Bridge.

Nicolo Capelli came off his machine in the Newcomers race yesterday evening, resulting in the race being red flagged.

His condition was described as serious with leg fractures, but isn't thought to be life threatening.

MGP action continues later today with the Junior and Lightweight classes both taking to the course, as well as a qualifying lap for Friday's Senior race.

Roads close at 9am and are due to re-open shortly after 4.30pm.
