lightning strikes at Estoril...

during the redbull rookie's cup.

But once Moto2 finished, the weather turned vicious, with thunderstorms striking just as the Red Bull Rookies took to the track. The Rookies were almost literally subjected to trial by fire, with lightning striking within a couple of meters of one of the youngsters, forcing him to run off the track and lose consciousness, with two more nearby riders also blacking out. The session was canceled immediately, the riders going out again once the heavy rain had lost most of its intensity.

Thats nuts, that would have been one crazy way to go .

I wonder if it messed with the vision of the guys following the guy that almost got zapped.
