Track Day Crash / how not to re-enter the track

From hockenheim ring track day....

So... Where do you think he went wrong?

video....

http://movies.gaskrank.tv/201507/25870-720p.mp4


Article...

http://m.autoevolution.com/rider-mis...deo-97665.html

"The German Police investigate an incident apparently caused by a 44-year-old Honda rider who, upon re-entering the track, miscalculated the speed of the approaching pack. The police say that he collided with a 31-year-old Kawasaki rider, bouncing into two other riders, both aged 24. One of the bikes even caught on fire as can be seen in the footage below.

Three of the four riders have been hospitalized with severe injuries, but luckily, no casualty was reported. The damage caused by the crash is estimated around 50,000 ($55,175). More info will become available as the police investigation carries on."

Once you run off the track you should stay off the track, right?

At first I thought it might have been Bevo, but then I realized he's probably older and that they weren't doing parade laps.

I've done faster parade laps at GSS than your best trackday lap
