Moto3: Image of the day – If you can’t beat them…have a sit down!

So…it’s a bit early in the weekend for an ‘Image of the GP’ but the sight of Luis Salom commandeering the marshals deckchair after his engine blew was one of the true comedy tinged moments in a scary-type-of-crash filled weekend.

Salom has not had a lot of luck when it come to reaching the end of a qualifying session on his Red Bull KTM Ajo bike of late, but this time instead of a strop into his garage (often followed by a strop to behind the garage, away from the cameras) he rather refreshingly plonked himself in the deckchair vacated by the marshal, the type of which I have not seen in action since my own trips to the beach as a kid in the 1980’s, and sat there until he was retrieved by scooter and returned to the team in the pits. Awesome behaviour. Image below:

If you can’t beat them, err watch them!

  1. Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are
    you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers
    and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    1. Using WordPress – It’s in the address line. If it’s not for you I also post to a site which uses Blogger which is easy to pick up, or if you use a lot of pictures, maybe try Tumblr?
