Get well soon Brandon
Photographer Tim White got in touch to ask...
Are you aware of the huge crash Brandon Robinson had at Indy? He's still in hospital in Indy with hip fractures. I saw the whole thing--truly frightening. First lap, first corner, he got caught up in a multi-bike crash and ended up bouncing off the top of the airfence and flew over the catch fencing, landing outside the track and hitting a light pole. Very violent, very scary. Other than not walking for the next several months, I think he's going to be okay.
We'd heard a little, but not the whole details. Brandon came to race in the UK when he was still an amateur, and he blew us away with his skill. We knew he'd be good, but not that he'd qualify for his National number at the very first attempt. Brandon featured in Sideburn 1. Get well soon. Thanks to Tim for sending this photo of Brandon in happier times.
