  • Flaming Crash on Warmup Lap

    Thats about all the info I got, apart from the vision on the news this morning. Apparently one rider hit another on the warmup lap, and his bike just combusted big time!! slid all the way down the track, past all the other riders.

    Does anyone know any other details?

        However not all riders were able to bring their bikes home, this was
        one
        race of many spectacular accidents. On the warm up lap, Superbike Cup
        contender Warren Scott lost control of his Kawasaki breaking into lodge
        and collected Vince Whittle's Ducati.

        As the bikes fell the fuel tank of the Ducati split open, spreading its
        fuel all over the track. This then combusted and the flames caught the
        fuel tank of the Kawasaki which also combusted. The flaming Ducati slid
        up
        the road nearly collecting WSBK Noriyuki Haga. Haga later retired from
        the
        restarted race due to a broken gear lever
        Aim high and consider yourself worthy of great things

            The Kawasaki's version of the Yamaha's flaming R1 paint job
            1, Always look good
            2, Always know what you're doing
            3, In failure of step 2 refer to step one

              Those damn Kawasakis keep crashing and burning and getting last in races. Hopefully not all of them end up like that. :shock:
              Fast, cheap & reliable ... pick any two.
