Ever loose your cool at a trackday?

This guy did, and now he's facing criminal charges.

He also happens to be a current WSBK rider and rode for EBR / Larry Pegram earlier this year before they folded. He has raced in MotoGP and Moto2 before too... Eventhough this happened a while ago, still bizarre.




WSBK’S Niccolò Canepa is facing a criminal charge over this incident caught on CCTV in which he allegedly applies another rider’s front brake, reports Motociclismo.

Canepa, who rides a Ducati Panigale R in World Superbikes for the Althea Racing team, is due to appear in court charged with assault and battery according to the Italian magazine, which has posted the footage on its YouTube channel.

It appears to show a rider hitting the brake lever of a Suzuki GSX-R1000 ridden by Davide Cappato during an amateur practice session at Mugello, Italy, on September 23 2013. Cappatto suffered a broken collarbone in the subsequent crash.

Canepa is due to appear in court in Florence on September 30 according to Motociclismo. It’s understood he denies intentionally causing a crash.

The 27-year-old Italian is currently 22nd in the WSBK championship standings.

While I agree, I highly doubt it.... The FIM would rather end the careers of guys who forget to fill out paper work and declare the prescription drugs they are taking. Speaking of which James Stewart's year and a half (two seasson long) ban will be over this month.

As a further example of what the FIM permits at their own events with just a slap on the wrist, see moto3 front runner having a spat in the next vid. This one is actually rather comical but only for that it didn't end in a crash and for what happens when they line up for the practice start.

There would have to be reason to believe he intended to kill. Not a matter of IF the rider could have been killed
