I would be so effin with the second crash. Looking that in the video made me wonder if "to each his own" rules would still apply, I mean it is obvious that the second guy disrespected all passing rules from the track.

The second crash ought to be shown at all the local track riders schools. It would seem to be a PERFECT illustration of why they don't want passing on the inside. I'll bet that's what Graeme's incident looked like as well.

Looks like he might have locked the front, and couldn't get the bike turned in?

I have a question , even though it is obviously the other guys fault what typically happens in the pits between the rider ( besides the obvious F U's ). The rider at fault isnt responcible for any damage ?

That's probably the bullshit excuse he used back in the pits. In reality, he was going so fast that he was unable to turn the bike in. Notice that the idiot puts his foot down even before colliding with the other bike. And, no, that wasn't a Casey Stoner move either.

as soon as i saw that guy that caused the crash pop into the left side of the screen i knew he was headed right towards the guy on the blue bike.

you can see the guy coming in too hot and locking his brakes up and then he just panicked, which is understandable. i'd prolly squeeze a turtle head out too in that situation.

but not owning up to it makes that a p00sy move.

what level riders were in that session?

They have racer numbers so I would think Advance or Intermediate.

Lol.


In that thread it says the father and son were banned for life from that trackday org, and they were passing it on to other orgs to get them banned at theirs as well. Good. They totally deserve it.

Hey is that the crash that happened the other day/week? The one that was posted cause the guy didn't own up to hitting him and they found an appology in another forum? If not... it's exactly how they described the incident.

No this one was in Cali. But very similar incident methinks.

Probably a bit of both. You can see the head shake when he's deep on the brakes. Its hard as to get a bike to turn in when your grab a handful, and even harder when your arms are locked on the bars cuz you just crapped your pants after locking the front.
