RIP: Red Bull Rookie Cup Rider Toriano Wilson

RIP: Red Bull Rookie Cup Rider Toriano Wilson
14 years old ...
by staff
Monday, August 18, 2008
This just in frm Red Bull:

Statement regarding the accident at the Virginia International Raceway Red Bull AMA U.S. Rookies Cup event:

Toriano Wilson, a road racer from Bermuda, fell on the track during the first lap and was accidentally struck by another rider while attempting to get out of the way.

Toriano was airlifted to UNC Medical Center for treatment, but later succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead early Monday morning. The other rider was transported to Duke Medical Center in Durham, NC and suffered a broken left arm and broken left femur. He is in a stable condition.


The AMA and Red Bull have a long history in racing and every effort is made to create the safest possible environment for all participants. Unfortunately, racing also carries inherent risks. This was a tragic accident and our thoughts are with both families at this time.



RIP, prayers for family and friends

It's on RRW online.

One of our local CMRA racers was involved (wasn't the one who hit him after he fell though), and this hits close to home for the CMRA family.

Great kids racing here, and this is indeed a tragedy to the sport as a whole.

Prayers to the family and friends.

a tragic loss. he showed some very good potential. unfortunately, it's one of the biggest risks when having a bunch of kids on the track, they lack the experience to know what to do in that type of panic situation. RIP.
