East London Grand Prix crash

Don't you just love 'old school' circuit safety

This video shows South African motorcycle racer Heinrich Rheeder crashing at the Prince George Circuit in East London, South Africa. The video claims the crash happens at 180mph, although we suspect it's actually a bit slower.

Nevertherless, it's a nasty crash. It almost looks like he's taken a bet from his mates to hit that bump in the grass at the end of the straight. If there was a bet involved, he certainly wins it!

Fortunately, he only ends up with three fractured ribs and two broken fingers...
