After another stunner of a season, there’s time for a look back at a few stats from the year – including the race weekends in which we saw the most crashes. With a few wet weekends in 2017, too, there were a few contenders – have a look at the ‘leaderboard’, headed by a very wet San Marino GP:

Misano

A wet race day and incident-filled GP at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli tops the table with the most crashes of 2017 - with the grid finding the San Marino weekend a tough one!

Motegi

A soaking wet MotoGP™ race didn't put a damper on the awe-inspiring duel for the win between Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) and key challenger Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) - but the Japanese GP did see quite a few crashes for the field over the course of the weekend...

Phillip Island

The 2017 Australian GP will be remembered for one thing - the stunning dogfight at the front. But there were a number of incidents across the weekend - not including THAT moment into Turn 1 between Viñales, Andrea Iannone (Team Suzuki Ecstar) and Johann Zarco (Monster Yamaha Tech 3), somehow!

Although the tendency towards more crashes remains and 2017 was a record year, so too does MotoGP™ and the tracks on which it races get safer – making for less serious incidents as all three classes push the limits of skill and gravity.
