After a tricky introduction to Imola, Corentin Perolari is seeking a return to action as soon as possible!

For Corentin Perolari (GMT94 Yamaha), Imola was on the list of new circuits to discover. From the outset, it looked like it could be a relatively positive Pirelli Italian Round, finishing 12th. The French rider was eager to pick a few tenths Friday afternoon.

Unfortunately, for the rider in Christophe Guyot's team, a violent highside decided otherwise. The 21-year-old injured his right collarbone, putting an end to his riding at Imola. "I'm doing well, but I'm going to have an intervention this Wednesday to get a plate and get better as soon as possible. I'm suffering a little, but I'm fine "

"I lost consciousness and I cannot remember anything. It was by analysing the videos that I was told that I had gone highside just in front of Krummenacher. It was FP2 and I still did not master the track. I was in a good rhythm and it is a beautiful course that seemed rather suitable for me. But that's the way it is, the risks of motorsport."

For Perolari, the goal is to take advantage of these few weeks before the next meeting in Jerez to return in top form. "I will try to get back as quickly as possible and to be 100%. Still, I thank all the team that supports me even these difficult times. It's great and it helps me keep my spirits up!"
