Randy Mamola’s amazing save in San Marino
Randy Mamola was a grand prix racer back in the days of the two-stroke 500s. Today, he gives promotional rides on a two-seater Ducati, and has a charity called Riders for Health.
Today, Jalopnik posted this insane save Randy made in the 1985 San Marino GP. It is—as the announcer said—’The absolute closest you can get to crashing, without falling off.”
Makes all the close calls we’ve had look decidedly pedestrian.
