Here’s video of the horrific crash that left double world champion Casey Stoner with a broken shoulder and leg at the Suzuka 8 hour race at the weekend.
The race, won by Yamaha, saw Stoner return to competition for Musashi Honda and came to grief while leading endurance race the Suzuka 8 hours.
In his first competitive race since 2012, the 29 year-old suffered the massive fall and, on his hands and knees, tried to crawl to the safety of the barriers before track marshals were able to reach him.
Stoner suffered a broken scapula and fractured tibia in the crash and said a stuck throttle was the cause of the incident.
