Rory Skinner’s hopes of his first points in the Moto2 World Championship came to an abrupt end just three corners into his home British Moto2 round at Silverstone when he was taken out by an errant rider.

The Scot - returning to action after skipping two rounds through injury - started a career best 21st on the American Racing Kalex but after navigating through Abbey, he was struck by Borja Gomez.

The Spaniard had run wide on the exit of Farm, striking the wet grass and coming down, before his Fantic bike skated back across the track skittling Skinner, Dennis Foggia and Taiga Hada out of the race.

A frustrating end to an encouraging weekend for Skinner after showing a step forward in performance on a circuit he knows well, he is now looking forward to the next round at the Red Bull Ring where he has also raced before.

“It wasn’t exactly the BritishGP that I hoped for. It was lovely having all the fans trackside, it was a great environment to be in but today it just wasn’t meant to be; three corners into the first lap, having a Moto2 bike come flying at me wasn’t exactly in the plan.

“I’m feeling a bit stiff and sore, but I think I’ll be good to go again for tomorrow’s test.

“I think the highlight for me this weekend was FP3, finishing top 10 in a wet session. Yes, I know it was wet but they always say ‘the wet is a great leveller’ so to be back up there was nice, even for one session, but I’m sure we can continue from there.”
