Teenage racer dies from crash injuries
A 15-year-old motorcycling enthusiast has died from serious head injuries he received during a junior race on the Oschersleben circuit, organisers confirmed on Sunday.
The teenager, who has not been named, had been involved in a collision with four racers at the start of the race on Saturday at Oschersleben, near Hanover.
He was transported by helicopter to Magdeburg for an emergency operation, but later died from his injuries and Sunday’s planned race was cancelled as a result.
The accident happened during the ADAC Junior Cup series for junior racers held at eight circuits in Hungary, Italy, Germany and the Netherlands over the course of the season.
