Back from Laguna in one piece. Not too much drama other than the radio repeater calved Sunday, throwing radio communications into utter chaos. Fortunately I'm on a land line. Massive oil related accident Saturday during Superbike practice thanks to Roger Lee Hayden oiling the track from Turn 6 all the way (on the line) to the apex of Turn 8. Speed glossed over it during their Superbike race episode with a still photo of Hayden draining his motor :jerkoff: and one of Eslick's bike pounding the air fence.. They don't do it justice. Personally, I haven't seen anything like this since Westwood. After Hayden putted across the apex of Turn 8 draining oil from his lower fairing and coasted down to Turn 8A, 4 bikes went through Turn 8 on their sides at 100 MPH. The 5th bike stopped just short of the inside of the Turn 8 apex in 3 pieces; rear sub-frame, front wheel and triple tree and the motor/tank/seat section. That bike hit the wall and fencing full force right at a photographer's port before the corner and broke apart. If anyone had been there, they would have been dead. And that's where FIM REQUIRES 2 flaggers be during FIM events. Pictures to come. The debate with FIM will continue, I'm sure. :behead Everyone walked away and we destroyed the grease sweep budget for the weekend. The sad thing is, it was a privateer whose bike was destroyed. Video is at dropbox with a file from each of the 2 cameras mounted at the outside of Turn 8. Image quality is pretty bad but it is what it is. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ooddhek3irzbqa5/turn 7-8 crash 1.avi and https://www.dropbox.com/s/57vbv3iz0xvcgtt/turn 7-8 crash 2.avi Oh, yeah. One plus to the weekend (amongst a few). Colin Edwards came down to worker camp Thursday afternoon for a Q&A and a beer. He couldn't make any promises on when he'll be coming back to Vancouver for another of his famous 'Ride Safe' seminars. He did say that Lorenzo and de Puniet will be at his upcoming boot camp. :bow: We did a group photo and he signed a few things including 3 of my photos. As usual, Bernie gets one for his Daytona Party, the club gets one for Air Fence fund raising and I'll keep the third one.
