There is a one-bike rule in BSB and the PR Racing Kawasaki team were in a race against time to get the damaged bike ready for the start of the first race.
“It was quite a big shunt, and there was quite a lot of damage to the bike, but structurally the bike is ok. We will put a lot of bits and pieces back on it, to try and make it brand new again for the race," PR Racing Kawasaki crew chief Tim Broom told BSN.
"We should be on the grid, as long as Karl is ok, which he seemed to be when he came back."
