Komplitsport.com | Marc Marquez won the 8th world motorcycle racing title after being saved by specially designed racing suit technology that protected him when he suffered a severe accident at the FP1 MotoGP free training session in Thailand.
The Spaniard lost control of his motorbike at Bend 7 of the Buriram Circuit until it bounced and fell hard on the track.
Marquez curled up on the gravel and could not breathe before being rushed to a local medical center and hospital for a scan.
“It was a strange accident because I just came out of the pit to undergo an out lap. Maybe the tires were not ready or maybe I was in a dirty area,” Marquez said as quoted by the official MotoGP website.
Alpinestar, the company that provides racing equipment Marquez, on Tuesday released the accident analysis data that befell the Repsol Honda rider.
There is a two-second gap between the moment Marquez lost control of his RC213V motor and the collision he experienced.
The airbag in his racing suit expanded 0.585 seconds before Marquez’s body touched the asphalt, Alpinestar said via his official Twitter account.
In the first collision with asphalt, the sensor on the left shoulder shows a gravitational force of 26.14G.
However, the collision was still not as strong as experienced by Loris Baz when he fell in a test session at Sepang in 2016. The French rider suffered a 29.9G collision.
As an illustration, the golf ball suffered a clash as strong as 19G when the club swinging golfers hit it. Then the car that crashed while driving at 64kpj experienced a 35G impact, according to the official MotoGP website.
Thanks to the airbag safety technology that has become standard on MotoGP racing suits, Marquez is able to get past one of his worst accidents without getting hurt.
