Talk about a shitty day!!Terrible accident during a motorcycle race held in the Netherlands. One of the participants could not start, apparently due to a malfunction of the vehicle. Although he reported this, holding hands high, another competitor broke down, and a third rider simply passed over it! Board rider suffered serious injuries: two broken legs, pelvis fracture, internal bleeding and muscle tears. He already had several surgeries and is artificially induced coma. His condition is critical.
Wow I hope he pulls through!! Thats just terriblethis is from http://www.autoshortnews.com/motorcycle-racing-board-colleague-starting-line-shocking-video/
Talk about a shitty day!!
Starting grids getting too crowded. The guys should do something about this in order to avoid this kind of accidents. if you look at this particular one not only is crowded but the to track itself is really narrow. If you watch Moto2 you find this kind of accidents are quite often.
They usually have around 40 bikes at the start, it comes down to 30 by the 1st lap lol
Dorna (the championship organizer) had over 80 applications from teams trying to get into moto2 before the start of the season, so they had to decline about half of that.
The only way they have to get the numbers down a bit is just by capping the total ammount of racers for each race. Qualifying usually has just about 3 secs between first and last, thats not enough for the 107% rule to become active.
Anyway Moto2 has become the reason for me to wake up sooner at sundays, its been alot more enjoyable than MotoGP. Yes there have been crashes, but there havent been serious injuries and hey, thats bike racing, its bound to have crashes. Doesnt really matter if its 40+ or 17 (like MotoGP), crashes and injuries will happen regardless, just ask De Puniet.
Well I see you race!.............. At least are you a pro or just a totally amateur guy?Well I see you don't race!.......... that a total non racers comment!
this kinda pisses me off, soooo just because it's dangerous who cares if they make it just a bit more so?............. come on man! you get out on the track with 30 other guys and see how you feel going into turn one! then I will put merit into your opinion until then it's just fucking dangerous!
