Two motorbike racers have been handed lengthy bans after incredibly fighting each other on track during Costa Rica's Championship race in February.

Jorge Martinez and Marion Calvo started throwing hands after colliding with one another during the first round of Costa Rica's National Motorbike Championship.

One of the riders even ended up riding as a pillion passenger on the other's bike after the collision, moments before the brawl began.

The fight occurred after both Martinez and Calvo jockeyed for position during a close encounter.

As they made their way down a long straight part of the track, Calvo is seen to nudge his rival which saw Martinez lose control before clinging onto the back of Calvo's bike.

With Martinez on the back of his bike, Calvo pulled over to the side before his passenger jumped up to wildly throw a punch in the extraordinary scenes. 

The punch sent Calvo off-balance and onto the grass before he retaliated by running up to his aggressor and pushing him in the middle of the track as he walked back to his bike.
