Eugene Laverty taken by helicopter / Superbike World Championship

Eugene Laverty’s last race as a professional runner ended in the hospital. The second Superbike feature race at Phillip Island had to be stopped after the Northern Irishman crashed.

There is hardly any other racing driver who has been as unlucky with injuries in his career as Eugene Laverty. The books could be full of stories about the broken bones the 36-year-old has endured for the past 20 years.

Eugene drove his final race in Australia on Sunday, he will move on to manage this year’s Bonovo action team for next year and will be available for BMW as a test driver.

Instead of giving his last interview as a racing driver to a small group of journalists on Sunday night and then having an end-of-season party, his day ended in hospital. Laverty drove a strong second feature race in Australia and was temporarily in 10th place. On lap 18 his front wheel slipped in the first very fast right-hand corner and the following Xavi Fores (Barni Ducati) couldn’t avoid it.

The race was immediately stopped and Laverty was airlifted to Melbourne’s Albert Hospital after receiving emergency medical attention. According to the initial diagnosis, he fractured his pelvis. It is not yet known how serious the injury is and if he has sustained any other injuries. However, it was learned from team circles that the 36-year-old is conscious and responsive and can move his arms and legs.
