Surprised

If I was the guy filming on the last bike, I'd have had to stop and see if the fella was ok. Not to mention I'd be proper shaking having had that happen in front of me.

Just like

Charlie says, I can't believe the guy filming it all didn't stop...

Also, the last rider from the group in front probably has no idea what a lucky escape he had!

Chuffin hell

Thats flippin shocking!! How close was he to the bike in front! Someones lucky day i think (and someone elses unlucky one lol)

Regarding stopping to see if the guy is ok, on a trackday u are told not to stop on track no matter what unless its u who has crashed/broken down. Its the marshals job to deal with what has happened, they are professionals (tho often volunteers) and will deal with it better without ur 'help'!!

On a day at Donington recently, a guy binned it at Mellbourne Loop and one of the instructors on the track stopped to help and got a reet old bollocking off the marshal!!


:lol:

I thought that may be the case, but having never done a track day I wasn't sure. I probably still would have stopped due to the debris all over the track and shitting myself after watching the guy just passing me decide to enter the corner about a second after his bike did. :wacko:
