Marc Marquez had an accident at MotoGP Thailand. Data released showed that the Repsol Honda rider had a pretty terrible crash.

Before locking the sixth title in the Thai MotoGP race on Sunday (6/10/2019), Marquez crashed. The moment occurred in the first training session, Friday (4/10).

During the session, Marquez suffered a severe crash at Chang 7 of the Chang International Circuit. At high speed, the Spanish rider was shaken and bounced until the RC213V motorbike that he rode destroyed, he himself drove far into the gravel.

Reported by Crash, Marquez apparently had a pretty bad accident. Alpinestar, Marquez’s livery supplier, shows its data taken from Tech-Air technology.



Through technology similar to the Airbag, Marquez is known to have an accident for 4.81 seconds. At 0.585 after the crash, the Alpinestar sensor worked so that the water bag in Marquez’s chest expanded, followed by three other sensors.

Marquez recorded experiencing a collision to the damped ground with a slowdown of 26.14 g. Then, Marquez still suffered a collision of 22 g afterward, and 12 g on gravel.

Afterward, Marquez was rushed to the hospital due to shock and difficulty breathing. The Baby Alien was later declared fit and could race again. On Sunday, the 26-year-old rider also locked his sixth world title in MotoGP or eighth in all classes.

So far, Marquez’s accident data has been the second-largest since the Loris Baz crash at the Sepang Circuit in 2016 (29.9 g). At that time, Baz crashed due to a tire burst when speeding on a straight track.
