    he did:
    After going at 184 km / h at the point where the line of boxes is installed radar, Bueno realized the lack of brakes on his truck and tried to get him out of the lane, turning left. Unable to slow down in the grass, crossed the lane in a curve, broke the wall and protecting tires. The truck went over to trees after plummeting from a height of over 15 meters, in the fall via internal access to the racetrack.
    Helped at the scene by the team of Dr. Daniel Gabriel de Moraes, medical category, the pilot was taken to the Hospital Manoel Francisco Guerreiro, in Guaporé. The medical staff of the clinic guaporense subjected him to a series of X-rays and CT scans, which were found fractures suffered.

    At the hospital, Diumar Bueno spoke with the president of the class, Neusa Navarro, and despite the scare, it's okay.

    I like how the medic/emergency guy got to the scene on a moped, not like there might be a rush or anything!

    It can often be the quickest way around. With thousands of people watching, marshaling the race and tight access roads (if they're there) filled with people, bikes equipment a bike is often the fastest way around. You could say send a car up the track but with massive trucks whizzing around it it's more or less off limits.

    With F1 tracks like Monaco or even purpose built tracks there can be problems with accessing parts of the track never mind the field beside the track.
