Redding ready to race at Aragon

Scott ReddingScott Redding will test at Valencia on Monday ahead of the next Moto2 race at Aragon the following weekend.

The 17-year-old Briton was knocked unconscious in the crash that claimed the life of Shoya Tomizawa at Misano on Sunday. He has had 12 stitches in a laceration on his lower back and will use the run to test his fitness before the race weekend.

Redding is eager to get back into action, but admits he is still struggling to come to terms with Tomizawa's death.

"I was gutted when I found out the news about Tomi and it still hasn't really sunk in yet," he said Redding. "He was a really good guy and will be missed in the paddock and on the track. My thoughts are with his family, friends and team, who all suffered a huge loss at the weekend.

"I don't remember anything about the crash; one minute I was on the gas as normal and the rest is just a blank. I haven't seen the crash on television, and I don't want to, but I do know that I was very lucky to escape serious injury.

"The wound to my back is already improving and I'm determined to get back on the bike as soon as possible. We have a one-day test at Valencia next week, which will give me a chance to check everything is okay with my back before heading to Aragon for the next race."

Redding has hit a run of strong form recently, claiming his first podium at Indianapolis two weeks ago and qualifying second at Misano.
