The 2017 British Superbike season has got under way at Donington Park.

Tragically, during one of the support races there was a crash and rider Mick Whalley died from his injuries.

Members of military team True Heroes Racing were competing in that same race and although they say instances like this are pretty rare in short track racing it was a stark reminder how dangerous motorsport can be.

I met the team during their first BSB season four years ago, and went to Donington to see how far they’ve come on.
