The unfortunate event occurred in the last round of qualifying, when in the ninth turn came a mass fall, after which the young rider remained lying helplessly on the track. In addition, the Swiss racer Dupasquier was hit by the Japanese Sasaki after the fall, who followed him.
Subsequently, the talented rider was transported by helicopter to the hospital, where he unfortunately succumbed to a serious head injury during Sunday.

His Prustel GP team did not participate in Sunday’s race at all.
This was the second season in Moto3 for 19-year-old Dupasquier. In addition, a few weeks ago in Jerez he won the best result of his career at the Spanish Grand Prix, namely seventh place.
