From last nights IndyCar race at Iowa Speedway.
The aeroscreen really proved its worthiness last night.
Sunday's Spanish MotoGP race, in the early laps, Marc Marquez did this
He clawed his way back up to third and then did this
He suffered a broken arm and will be out at least a couple weeks.
I haven't seen a high-side that vicious in a while.
As bad as it sounds, a broken arm is a pretty good result from that crash. Although his right arm was flopping around pretty badly.
Update on Marc Marquez and it's good news.
He did break his upper right arm (humerus bone). 10% of those types of fractures involve damage to the radial nerve which is involved in controlling the wrist and fingers. Fortunately there was no damage to the radial nerve. So it's just a matter of healing the break. He's got a titanium plate in there right now. His return to racing is unknown, but he will definitely miss the next round in Jerez this weekend.
Actually he is trying to race at Jerez. Its confirmed by Honda that he is going there
Edit: he has been declared fit by motoGP
I swear marquez is not human. Glad he's better now.
He's beyond talented on that bike
Glad he's back on it as well. Big fan of his.
How do you get declared fit 5 days after breaking one of the biggest bones in your body?
I have come to the conclusion Marc Marquez is half human, half cyborg when it comes to his abilities on a motorcycle.
No, the conclusion is that MotoGP doesn't give a crap about the health of their riders. They need to bring in mandatory layoff times for various injuries because it's ridiculous that we're lauding the "bravery" of a man who's coming back far too soon for the sake of the championship.
^ Agree with that
However, in the meantime he withdrew from the gp and will not start tomorrow
Vintage Can-Am blow over, Road America doesn't mix well with ground effect:
Since it doesn't make it clear in the video itself, he walked away.
The real crime here is filming vertically.
TIL Tarso Marques nowadays is designing bonkers motorbikes.
I like the series of modern Triumph Bonnevilles with solid wheels he did.
That most recent one with the spokeless wheels and the air-cooled flat-six is amazing. I know he's engraved "Rolls-Royce" into the rocker cover, but that's not a Rolls-Royce engine. It's either from a Corvair or something like a Franklin or Lycoming aircraft engine.
Crofty (Sky F1 commentator) mis-pronounces "cost-cutting".
Obvious language warning.
Very very obvious language warning.
I hate Croft as a commentator. I'd much rather have Di Resta, Button, Herbert, Chandook, or Hill in there along side Brundle.
All he does is yell all the time and say the wrong ****. He's terrible
That would make him pretty popular with the Murray Walker crowd.
I've never heard Murray commentate so i can't compare them.
A great final lap battle for the win in last weekend's second F3 race:
What a move!
MotoGP avoiding tragedy twice today. First Moto2, than MotoGP.
All riders are ok.
That MotoGP is genuinely scary. Just look at Rossi's reaction when he gets off the bike at the end.
So many motorsports crashes have that "what if?" element, but this one is absolutely terrifying.
Yep, most of them are 'that would have ruined his race', this one would have likely killed him if he took it square on.
Lando has joined the ever-growing list of video game streamers being attacked by wasps.
