Video: Hot times at the Isle of Man

Racer Grant Wagstaff saw some hot times at the Isle of Man TT, but we’re not talking about scorching laps.

Wagstaff stopped for fuel in the Supersport 2 race, but the crew made a mistake when gassing him up, sending him and his bike into flames. Wagstaff wasn’t seriously injured, but a mechanic ended up in hospital overnight due to burns.


  1. It amazes me that there is not a person standing there with a fire extinguisher ready. While watching ChumpCar races at Shannonville they had to have a person in a fire suit standing by at the ready whenever fuel was put into the car on pit lane. A few teams were reprimanded when the person fueling and the person standing by with the extinguisher were not following procedure.
