Terrible Ducati 851 Phillip Island Crash

1295/8

There will always ba a danger in bike racing, and this highlights it. 

Honestly the driver (Mertens) doesn't do anything all that wrong in this, just loosing his concentration for a second as the superbike touches the kerb, and then it is all over. He goes down very hard but the boke is completely destroyed, and Mertens is lucky to get away with just a shoulder injury. The flaming bike luckily stays off the track, but it is a huge crash and goes to show that even the professionals need to be vigilant at all times with these high performance motors.
