TT Legends – Simon Andrews at the Isle of Man TT

Following a four-bike crash in the sixth hour of the 24 Heures Moto at Le Mans, in which Honda TT Legends rider Simon Andrews suffered two broken legs, a broken forearm and shoulder, broken ribs causing a punctured lung and three broken vertebrae in his lower back, the Honda TT Legends team were forced to retire from the 24hr endurance race.

Andrews was conscious and coherent following the incident and was taken to circuit’s medical centre for immediate assessment, before being transferred to hospital.

The Honda TT Legends were running in third place at the time of the accident with 18 hours remaining in the 24-hour race. The bike was deemed irreparable and the team was forced to retire from the race.

We wish Andrews a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the circuit in the near future.
