Le Mans and Nogaro dangers

Protat, a 27-year-old rider from Lyon, suffered fatal injuries in the first-lap crash and died later at the track's medical centre, organisers said.

On March 9, world endurance motorcycling champion Anthony Delhalle was killed after crashing on a rain-soaked circuit in testing at the Nogaro circuit in south-west France.

The 35-year-old father of two was practising ahead of the Le Mans 24 Hour endurance race when he lost control of his Suzuki as he took a bend. As the bike barrel-rolled numerous times on the saturated grass surface, Delhalle was unseated and suffered serious head injuries.
