More than four months have passed since the unfortunate crash in Assen in Race 2 of the Supersport World Championship, in which Can Oncu suffered fractures and injuries that forced him to a long recovery period. The young Kawasaki Puccetti Racing rider was forced to stay away from the tracks and miss five rounds of WorldSSP but it seems that his recovery process is now complete.
To check his real physical conditions, Manuel Puccetti’s team has organized a day of testing at the Cremona Circuit on Friday 1st September, in which the Turkish rider will be able to get back on his Ninja ZX-6R. Only at the end of the test will it be possible to confirm his possible participation in the next round of the Supersport World Championship, which will take place from 8 to 10 September at Magny Cours in France.
The Cremona Circuit is located in San Martino del Lago (CR) and its main track is 3,702 meters long. It is covered counterclockwise and is undoubtedly a complete and technical track, with fast and supportive corners, as well as a 900-metre straight, excellent for reaching high speeds. The track is made up of 13 bends of which 6 are right and 7 are left.
Manuel Puccetti: “Finally we bring Can Oncu back on track! His serious right arm injury forced him to a long recovery period, in which Can underwent many hours of physiotherapy and long specific training sessions for the injured arm. He has already often ridden on Kenan Sofuoglu’s private track with a 300cc bike, together with Toprak Razgatlioglu, Bahattin Sofuoglu and his brother Deniz, but he hasn’t yet climbed onto his 600, which is a heavier and decidedly more performing bike. At the moment, therefore, we don’t know if he is able to return to racing and for this reason we have organized this test on Friday at the Cremona Circuit, after which we will know if we can deploy him, as we hope, in the next round of Magny Cours”.
