Here’s a video to underline just how quickly things can go wrong on track – end of a track session, one rider coasting around – another clips him – and the following rider gets a face full of superbike pretty quickly. Ouch. Here’s the video:

It reminds us of this crash in British Superbikes that saw the late, great Karl Harris copping a mush full of Tom Sykes’ Suzuki after Sykes and Leon Haslam had a coming together.

This was way back in 2008 – watch the clip from 0.19s in. It’s a brutal clash but Harris walked away with nothing more than a fat lip and a broken finger. Incredible.
