He crashed with fellow Australian Troy Batchelor during heat 15. “Jason was taken immediately by ambulance to the Manchester Infirmary and later transferred to Northampton General,” said Roy Stone, Crump’s Media Relations Manager. “Britain’s top trauma specialists performed a 4-hour operation and skin grafts to repair a nasty friction burn.”

“The doctors have done a great job but it’s all about recovery now,” said Crump, who currently has a 26 point lead in the World Speedway Grand Prix. “I have been in and out of the hospital and I am improving all the time. I just need to get back on the bike on Saturday and do the best I can. To lose the World Championship at this stage would be devastating. I won’t be giving up and will be fighting to the end.”

Crump has worked hard all season to be very close to his third World Championship Series Title and will do everything he can to be back on his motorcycle with K&N products in the Italian Grand Prix. “I love K&N sport bike filters, they are the best in the world,” he said. “I have solely used K&N filters my entire career and never had a problem. K&N is the best for speedway racing.”

The penultimate round of the World Speedway Grand Prix Championship resumes at the Olympia Stadium in Terenzano, Italy on September 26. Crump is the favorite for the World title with only two rounds to go in the series.
