During 2017, there have been a lot of different crashes at a lot of different corners – but there are always some more than others. Here’s the rundown of the top spots where riders went down this season:
Misano – Turn 6
The most prolific point where riders crashed this year was T6 at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli – which is where Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team) crashed out the lead of the San Marino GP to become one of 31 incidents at the corner this season.
Phillip Island – Turn 4
It’s a classic corner to be aware of at the Australian track – having seen many a race lead lost - and Honda hairpin saw 22 falls this year to be second in the standings of most crashes.
Le Mans – Turn 3
21 incidents happened at the Dunlop chicane this year – with the French GP one of the weekends that saw a lot of falls, including eventual Champion Marc Marquez’s (Repsol Honda Team) race-ending tumble.
Per session, most crashes happened in the race – with 333 crashes in 2017. Next up is FP3 – with MotoGP™ riders often pushing to gain direct entry to Q2 – on 192 falls, followed by qualifying, as can be expected in the fight for grid positions and pole: there were 189 crashes over MotoGP™ Q1 and Q2, Moto2™ and Moto3™ qualifying sessions.
