Chris Walker's Oulton Park Fireball

Author: Bike Social Sports Reporter Posted: 04 May 2014

Chris Walker had a bit of a scorcher in British Superbike Free Practice this afternoon as he slipped off his GBmoto Kawasaki ZX10R at Hizzy's chicane. The GBmoto rider clipped the curb on entrance, with the bike then cartwheeling back onto the track as the fuel tank burst meaning the bike erupted into flames reminscent of the Noriyuki Haga incident at the Cheshire circuit almost ten years ago.Fortunately the 'Stalker' was OK after the crash, despite running into the flames in attempt to save his bike, although his GBmoto Kawasaki was a little second hand.
