Fundraising page set up to help injured road racer

Spanish rider facing medical bill after testing crash at Jurby

Almost £3,000 has been donated to help a road racer injured while testing ahead of the Festival of Motorcycling.

Victor Lopez needed a three-hour operation to fit a new hip following his high-speed crash at Jurby Motordrome.

The Spanish rider's insurance for the TT Course doesn't cover him for Jurby, leaving him facing a large medical bill.

Fellow racer Andy Fenton set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the cost, which has already passed its target of £2,800.

An update on the page says Lopez is "overwhelmed" with the support he's received.
