Steel will – which makes Hutchi a hero
As early as 2010 Hutchi had a serious accident at Silverstone, where he almost lost his left leg. In the first lap, several drivers fell on the wet track and Huchi was overrun by the following motorcycles. He fought his way back to the motorcycle although he was still very restricted. He can move his leg only badly and therefore also switches with the right foot. Of course his motorcycles have to be modified accordingly.
To his old speed he has recovered and even exceeded. He had been able to make several wins at the TT and Macau, and last year, he fought with Michael Dunlop bitterly for the new track record on the Isle of Man.
The race is now continuing.
Horst Saiger also fell at the race. But he could drive his machine back into the paddock.
