Spectacular moments of 2003 Number 5: Poggiali and Porto

Our second clip in the 250 series sees a moment when the title chase took the first of many small turns on its lengthy journey over the course of the 16 races.

Quarter-litre debutant Manuel Poggiali had impressed everyone by winning his first ever 250cc race at Suzuka and repeating the feat in South Africa. However the 20 year old showed a moment of recklessness at Le Mans for round four when he ploughed into Seba Porto sending both riders into the gravel. It was the first of two DNFs for the Aprilia rider in three races.
