HERE'S THE most bizarre crash you'll see this week: a guy on a track day at Snetterton gets struck by a bellypan that comes off another bike at over 140mph, it hits him in the head, he gets knocked out, goes limp on his bike and luckily slumps off the side of it as it leaves the circuit, before it smashes in to the barrier.
The incident happened over the weekend on the back straight at Snetterton. The unfortuante rider is Josh Boyd, who said on Facebook that he doesn't remember being struck by the improperly secured ZX-10R bellypan. He 'woke up in hospital with blurred vision coupled with seeing different colours in each eye' and his bike is ruined.
Do you think this makes a case for rigorous machine checks at track days?
