Super bike

Crashes are part and parcel of motorbike racing, but the recent Donnington World Super Bikes was home to a bizarre crash that almost defied belief.

Footage has emerged of driver Tristan Palmer’s bike acting like it was a racehorse that had thrown its rider, by carrying on after a crash with the rest of the field.

Biker Palmer fell at Craner Curves on the first lap of the race in a three bike crash. But the bike carried on going rapidly, crossing the track twice before coming to halt at a wall of tyres.

‘The leader crashed in Craner Curves and I had nowhere to go, but surprisingly for a fast crash the bike and I were fine,’ said Palmer.
