Hutchy came off at the 27th miletone – after an epic one and a half lap battle with Peter Hickman. However, as the Bruce Anstey came into the pit lane, red flags were shown on Glencrutchery road. It was initally unclear who was involved in the incident, but Tyco BMW team have posted on social media, confirming it was Hutchinson involved – and that he is conscious, and on his way to Nobles Hospital by helicopter with suspected leg injuries, since confirmed as a broken femur.
