WATCHING THIS footage, it's hard to believe that Roberto Tamburini and Joan Lascorz both escaped serious injury after a massive crash in the opening moments of Sunday's World Supersport race from Silverstone.

During the first lap fracas, Lascorz fell and was hit by in the back by Tamburini's motorcycle. The impact pitched Tamburini from his machine, slamming him into the trackside barriers. His machine then burst into flames.

The race was immediately red flagged.

It was later confirmed Lascorz sustained concussion and Tamburini had broken his collarbone in the violent crash.
