Stall Racing’s Hall Issues Further Injury Recovery Update, Unveils 2019 Race Plans

Issuing a further update on his return to optimum fitness, Stall Racing’s Stuart Hall has stated that’s he’s all set to return to competitive action in the near future, having made now a full scale recovery from injuries sustained in an accident at Brandywell, during the second lap of August’s Junior Manx Grand Prix.

Sixth within the 2016 Newcomers B Manx Grand Prix, improving Mountain Course exponent Hall has shown tenacity, grit, determination and some to battle his way back to fitness ahead of the 2019 season.

Speaking about the long road to recovery, he candidly recently stated:

“It has been a long road to recovery but I am pleased to report that I have now been discharged from all medical services, following my crash in the 2018 Manx GP Junior race.

I have had a fantastic team of surgeons and physio’s that worked with me to rebuild and repair my shoulder, arm and leg.

I have been working extremely hard in the gym to get the flexibility and strength back, so I can muscle the bike around a race track. I have been working with my team to repair the bike (Stall Racing Yamaha), and will soon be back testing in the next few weeks.

I have also joined forces with RV racing and will be riding their SV650 (Suzuki) mini twin race bike in the Aintree championship alongside the Stall Racing Yamaha R6. I am extremely happy with how well I have recovered.

The medical staff expected it to take a further 6-12 months to recover but the support I have received from my team of physio’s, family, friends, employer, sponsors and girlfriend have meant I have made huge progress in a short space of time. I cannot thank everyone enough.”

We will also be competing in a variety of short circuit events on our own Yamaha R6. However our main event is and always will be competing at the Isle of Man.
