Barcelona. Tom Sykes (GBR) has to remain in hospital in Barcelona (ESP) for further observation. The rider for the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team had been taken to the “Hospital General de Catalunya” for further examinations after his serious accident in the second FIM Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK) main race on Sunday. These confirmed that Sykes has suffered severe concussion and the attending physicians would like to keep him under observation. No further injuries have been determined. As things stands, it is anticipated that Sykes will be able to leave hospital on Wednesday.

 

The next event in the 2021 WorldSBK season will take place at Jerez de la Frontera (ESP) this coming weekend. It is not yet clear whether Sykes will be able to race there.

 

“We are in constant contact with Tom,” says BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director Marc Bongers. “He is in good spirits and is back to his usual self, cracking jokes. We are delighted that he has come through this accident relatively well. He remains under observation due to the severe concussion, but no further injuries have been determined. We now have to wait and see what this coming weekend will look like. We will provide more information as soon as we get it. We would like to thank the track marshals, the medical staff at the circuit and in the hospital, and everyone who helped Tom so well after his accident and who are continuing to help him.”

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
