10. Car Incident Assistant - £free

Motorcycles are easy targets for crashes and this app lets you log any incidents for insurance purposes. The developers have created a simplistic app that allows you to take multiple photos of an accident scene, capture the location through GPS and record third party details amongst others.

09. MotoGP 2010 Official Live Timing – Premium Pass £11.49

Although rather expensive for an iPhone app this live timing app is a must-have for any MotoGP fan. This is the only app that provides the same data that the pit-wall receives in terms of split times, so as you are following the free practice, qualifying or racing on the TV you can get real-time results. Also, there is a interactive 3D map to view the riders on the track, so you can see a virtual representation of the gaps in the race.

08. Decibel - £0.59

Worried that your bike is too loud for the impending track day but you haven’t changed your exhaust, well you can test the decibels of your bike to make sure it is not too loud to make it out the track. Top Gear endorsed this app as Clarkson used it to measure the loudness of a supercar on the show.
