Hare-raising accident at Snetterton Harepin

Wildlife on track never ends well...

REMEMBER IANNONE'S seagull smash at the 2015 MotoGP of Australia at Phillip Island?

It seems he's not the only rider to fall victim to nature. On track at Snetterton this weekend, a racer ended his day in qualifying after hitting a hare and highsiding. 

Unfortunately the animal died, and the motorcycle didn't emerge well from the accident.
