The SAG Racing Team has provided a further update on the condition of its rider Carlos Tatay, following his serious accident while competing in the FIM Moto2 European Championship.

The Spaniard, who recently made his Moto2 World Championship debut in place of the injured Rory Skinner at American Racing, was involved in an accident on his own during the most recent round of the European series, which he was leading at the time.

Crashing on the fast downhill run towards Turn 1, Tatay struck the ground abruptly after the SAG Kalex folded beneath him immediately after braking. He then continued sliding a long way down the escape road before striking tyre barriers.


Taken to Faro Hospital, Tatay underwent an emergency operation but has spent the more recent days in his native Spain to undergo further assessment

SAG has declined to share the exact details of Tatay’s injuries but did reveal he has been taken to a ‘specialist clinic’, adding that his prognosis remains ‘uncertain’.

“The rider is in Spain and will be sent to a specialist clinic with the hope intact in his recovery, even knowing that the prognosis is uncertain,” it wrote on Instagram. “We will not commit the folly of promoting false hopes or catastrophic prognoses until we have the definitive diagnosis and treatment [click image below for link to SAG Instagram page].

“We will therefore demand from all the media the same reasonableness and respect that, in general, they have shown to date. There are signs that encourage us to be positive. 

“No information is provided that his family does not authorise, as it cannot be otherwise. 

“We hope that everyone will continue to support Carlos Tatay, his family and loved ones.”

Tatay competed in the Moto3 class last season, scoring a podium with the PruestelGP CFMoto team before stepping up to Moto2 with a campaign in the European series. Prior to Round 4 at Portimao, Tatay had led the standings following a victory at Jerez.

He also made his international Moto2 debut with American Racing as part of a two-round stint deputising for the injured Rory Skinner. Getting his first outing at the Sachsenring, Tatay impressed next time out at Assen after taking American Racing’s best result of the season with his run to 17th.
