Jake Dixon is hopeful of being fit in time for the upcoming Thailand Moto2 this weekend after hurting his shoulder in a crash out of the Australian Moto2 at Phillip Island.
The Briton ran second during the early stages of the Phillip Island race having initially avoided getting caught out by difficult wet conditions that had eliminated several of his closest rivals around him.
However, his race came to a painful conclusion when he crashed his GasGas Aspar machine on lap seven, just two laps before organisers called a halt to proceedings due to the worsening conditions.
Experiencing pain in his shoulder in the aftermath of the accident, while Dixon says there are no fractures, he will undergo more tests in the run up to Round 17 of the season at Buriram.
“It has been a shame to end the race like that. I felt I had the strength to fight for the podium, but the conditions were extreme and I have crashed.
“I have pain in my shoulder right now. We have already checked that there is no fracture, but we will continue to do tests to rule out other injuries.”
