    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Moto2 bikes will do about 180. Even the Moto3 bikes can hit 140.

    A current Moto GP bike will hit 240 MPH on a long straight.

    The fire wasn't the biggest danger in that crash. The most dangerous part would be not seeing where you are going because of the fire and the loss of traction because of fuel on the track.
