This is the result of MCN’s Senior Writer Andy Downes’ track day mishap at Brands Hatch this morning (Monday).

Andy highsided the Yamaha R6 on the exit of Druids, and the impact of the crash resulted in fuel spilling from the tank over the hot motorbike, causing a massive fireball.

Witnesses say the smoke cloud was visible from several miles away. Andy was fortunately left with just a minor foot injury in the incident.
