Very hard

For a young professional to comprehend that not only has he lost his career but also his ability to walk. Being in the army i realise my risks of losing limbs whilst away on operations and could accept that but being completetly paralysed would destroy me. Hopefully his dark days are behind him all my very best for the future to not only lascorz but to his family aswell.

Although I like the Imola circuit, there is bugger all run-off. I believe the new bikes and cars have outgrown many of these old tracks, and it's time to dump them.

There is no excuse whatsoever of there being an unprotected wall at a racing circuit no matter what the history or pedigree of the track. It always amuses me how much the Formula One cissies go on about dangerous tracks with limited run off yet none of 'em say a peep about Monaco with zero run off, too frightened to upset the big money.

WHY?

Just why does there happen to be an unprotected wall in the rider run-off area? Have these lessons still not been learned and why not? This young man does not need to be paralysed ar all. His future must now be assured financially as his ability to generate a living has now been curtailed and through the fault of others.

Agree

with all the comments regarding hitting walls. If the tracks and run off areas are not going to be changed/scrapped, could they look to implement a version of what the speeday boys use.....inflatable walls to cushion the blow.

Obviously the speeds are much higher, but they could size the inflatable wall accordingly. Wouldn't have to be at every corner, just the ones where the run-off area is compromised.

Just a thought. Anyway, all the very best for the future Joan.
