WATCH: Hare makes great escape in Moto3 race

Imagine going full tilt around the track and a hare suddenly runs across the road, narrowly missing the front wheels and a certain death.

That is exactly what happened at this past weekend's Moto3 race when rider Jorge Martin missed the animal by mere inches as it scurried across the track.

By a hare's breath...

Fortunately for both rider and hare, there was no injuries but a definite heart in mouth moment between the two..more for the hare it would seem judging by the clip below.
