He didn't even slow down. Or show any kind of concern.

That isn't very nice.

That's what I was thinking.
They don't stop the race due to a crash?
I guess it's every rider for himself out there.

Y would he stop? So then he can get hit from behind? That's was corner workers and instructor riders are for....never stop on a track not even if it's ur significant other involved in a crash

Looks like it was the guy on the inside was at fault. Crazy as how his bike spun around

they most likely go by track day rules. If you get a bunch of riders stopping to help it out then it creates more obstacles for racers that are approaching from behind. They should have corner workers at each turn to call for help and respond to the wreck. The turn this happened on was at the top of a hill and could be out of view to someone entering the turn.

Oh I see. I didnt mean for the rider to stop right there, I meant if they stop the race. IE: the rider slows down and rides to a designated stopping area (paddocks) till they clear the rider.

Dude, you know how many people I have watched wreck in front of me at the track? I have lost count.

You just keep on going.

They tell you specifically, DO NOT STOP, keep going and look for the flags.

I have seen way worse than this.

I'm sure they threw a flag to caution ppl in that corner and the ones before or even threw a red flag to pit immediately. Video wasn't long enough to tell but yes they will usually do it.

This!!!

Of course, no matter how many times they're told, someone that's not an on-track instructor usually stops.
