    How many events have you done and how many injuries?

    In the last year? 26 "events" (track days and race days), including 27 race starts (20 top 5s, 8 podiums). Zero injuries.

    In my life, I have had exactly one serious motorcycle-related injury... and it was after I had gone home from a race event and was riding a street bike at 25mph down a city street. Luckily, no one makes illegal u-turns on a race track (except maybe at an eXtremespeed track day).

    Not going to say they never happen, because obviously they do. But it also happens in every form of real motorsport.
