VIDEO: The 243mph Hayabusa Turbo crash

Having broken a world record the day before, Jason McVicar gets it all sideways at Bonneville Salt Flats

It went: salt, sky, salt, sky, salt, sky, salt...

JASON McVICAR set the world's fastest open wheeled motorcycle Bonneville record at 253mph at Bonneville Speedweek.

Then on Saturday he wheeled out his naked Turbo Busa and had it wound up to 243 mph when the rear tyre exploded. He got away with a broken kneecap (no body armour) some heat rash along one side, and every bone in his body sore and bruised.

One extremely lucky guy.
