Carolina Motorsports Park CCS...whacked!

So, check this crap out. My 'lil brother started racing his '08 ZX-6R last year as a hobby. Didn't do all that well last year, but had a good time (who wouldn't, it's RACING!). This year he had some higher hopes to get better and actually get on the podium at a couple of races.

So this past weekend he was at Carolina Motorsports Park (CMP) for the second race of his 2014 CCS season. And got taken out on the first freakin' lap of the GTU race!!! Here's the video of it.

http://youtu.be/xUC5PmI7-1o

Here's the result of this guy blowing the turn and ramming my little brother.



So I've been living vicariously through my little brother's racing "career" and was really rooting for him this past weekend. Now it looks like he'll be off the bike for the rest of the year. He's going in for surgery this Thursday to get the plate and screws put in. Bummed for him and hope he gets full use of his shoulder back.

From the video, it looks like the dude that whacked him was bike 690A, which is some guy named Tim Hassler. Apparently didn't even come over to apologize to my brother after the incident before my brother had to go to the hospital.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Wow, that does suck. That's one of the reasons why I'm hesitant on joining CCS. Some guys are only concerned about themselves and your just in their way and will purposely knock you down.

Yeah, it's tough. Racing brings out a lot of emotions, and a lot of the people doing it might have the physical skills required, but don't have the mental part figured out yet.

I'm positive this guy didn't do it on purpose. But it's obvious that he made no attempt to steer clear to the outside of the track or anything. It looks like he missed his marker, just stood on the rear brake, and went along for the ride. It didn't look like he was using the front brake at all.

And if you do wind up spearing someone else on the track, I would think the right thing to do is at least apologize for a boneheaded move that injured another rider.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Sucky, sucky. Hope he heals fast. I mentioned this in Techx thread but thats my worst fear at the track. Being torpedoed from behind. Pretty bad that the guy didnt even come and say he was sorry or see how your Bro was doing.

Minus the track fear since I don't really track. Still agree though, that's pretty sad he didn't at least come over to see if he was ok.

Hope for a speedy recovery!
