Jorge Lorenzo suffered a fractured left collarbone which will rule him out of the Assen TT after a huge crash in a wet second MotoGP practice session. The Spaniard, victorious in the past two grands prix, crashed early on when he fell foul of a combination of white lines and standing water heading into the sixth-gear Turn 13.

Audi driver Loic Duval bounced back from a heavy shunt in the morning to jump to the top of the times right at the end of the Le Mans test day. Duval crashed the #2 Audi R18 e-tron quattro he shares with Allan McNish and Tom Kristensen at Tertre Rouge in the morning session, but completed a lap within a second of last year’s pole mark after the chequered flag had fallen. The Frenchman’s 3m22.583s was nearly three seconds faster than the next best time, set by fellow Audi driver Lucas di Grassi in the #3 entry.
