Short clip from Phillip Island 1990 125cc race where Spaan tried to punch Gresini.



Just curious, does anyone think that was justified based on the circumstances of what went on in that race?

Oops, edited year.

Well I guess what I wonder is if an extreme circumstance such as what happened to Spaan, where you've got no real precedent (that I am aware of) do you just try to beat them outright or do something like get next to them and grab their front brake? Yes I know what I am saying is quite bad with the grabbing the front brake, but I'm just trying to figure out what the hell one even does there.

Physical violence should be kept to the garages, it doesn't really happen often though, I recall Michael Dunlop getting a year long ban from the ACU for headbutting another rider as probably the worst act of violence, the rest of it is normally just "handbags" as they call it.
