Another Locatelli Update

Roberto Locatelli, the 250 cc rider who suffered such a horrific crash at Jerez, is recovering well. He is currently at home, having left hospital yesterday. And despite the terrible injuries he suffered when he careened off the track into a tire wall, he is determined to return to racing. Dr Costa has told him he may be ready to race at the Mugello round in June, but Loca himself is determined to return one round earlier, at Le Mans.

This is a remarkable recovery, considering that his life was in serious danger after the crash, and there was doubt that he would ever return to racing, after suffering facial injuries, a badly broken ankle, and chest injuries. His determination to return amply demonstrates the courage, and some would say lunacy, required to succeed in the MotoGP series.

You can read his statement over at Robert Locatelli's website.
