A Grand Prix Moto Racer in Brazil has been banned from a local championship after pretending to faint during the race. The city of Santa Cruz do Sul in Southern Brazil witnessed one of the most bizarre scenes ever in Moto Racing.

During the Rio Grande do Sul State Moto Grand Prix, competitor Marlinton dos Reis Teixeira was unable to make a turn on the rainy track and slipped. He got up quickly and was trying to return to the race, but he was unable to restart his bike, and decided to go for a red flag by pretending to faint in the middle of the track.

Several racers passed by him and luckily he was not hit. Some of his fellow riders then stopped to help him. An ambulance and a safety car were sent to help the apparently stricken rider and paramedics took three minutes to remove him. Later, he was found to have faked the faint and now faces a ban from the championship.
