Craig Jones: 1985-2008




We are sad to inform that, as a result of a serious head injury sustained in an accident during yesterday's FIM Supersport World Championship race at Brands Hatch, Craig Jones, aged twenty three from Northwich, Cheshire died today in the early hours of the morning in the Royal London Hospital. It appeared that Craig lost control and fell from his Team Parkalgar CBR600 Honda at Clark Curve and was immediately and unavoidably struck by a following rider.

Immediate expert medical attention was provided and Craig was then flown by the Kent Air Ambulance to the Royal London Hospital where further assessment and treatment continued. Sadly, he succumbed to his injuries in the early hours of this morning (Monday).

Paolo Flammini, CEO of FGSport, declared:

"We are all deeply saddened by the tragic loss of Craig Jones following the injuries he received in his accident during the Supersport race. Despite his young age, Craig had been part of the World Superbike and Supersport scene for the past five years and he will be deeply missed by everyone in the paddock. He was having a great season with the Parkalgar Team and his race at Brands Hatch was another demonstration of his great talent. We at FGSport would like to convey our thoughts and sincerest condolences to his family and friends".

Sad lost for world superbikes. I heard that they are going to name a corner after him on the new track they are building in Portugal.

Sad loss,his career was just coming together and iam sure a few of the big teams were looking at him.

As naming a corner after him that would be a nice jester but i think that would be wrong as you have to earn the right to have a corner named after you,Foggies,Rainey strait, Doohans,Hissies to name a few sorry if this sounds harsh but Craig just wasen't quite there yet although iam sure he would of got there
