Two riders on the track at the Ulster Grand Prix this week. Neither pictured are Miguet.
‘The 49-year-old rider from Normandy, France, was taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital following an incident at the Joey’s Windmill section of the course during the Superstock race at the Ulster Grand Prix on Saturday 11th August.
‘Our thoughts are with Fabrice’s family, team and many friends at this difficult time.’
As originally reported by Belfast Live, Miguet was involved in a shunt on the fourth lap of his race in Northern Ireland, which led to the race being suspended for an hour.
The Kawasaki/Optrimark Road Racing driver was a regular competitor in both the annual Ulster Grand Prix and the Isle of Man TT.
Miguet’s crash was not the only incident at the meeting over the weekend. English rider Davey Todd was also left in hospital with suspected fractures, while Conor Cummins also slid off the track as poor weather saw the track conditions deteriorate.
