  • You've been mostly-dead all day.
Not sure if this guy's karma is suffering, but maybe it needs to.  As if the industry needs it's own actively trying to kill it.

I posted a lot of replies in there, pissed me off no end  >:(

Yep, sorry he got hurt but he meissed rider meeting plus did a bunch of laps before he 'squidded out'
Target fixation on the sandbags meant the inevitable happened. If her had just kept it leaned over he would have been fine but shutting off lifted bike then it just goes where your looking. Someone pointed out it would be interesting to know if he rode 'morning session' and if so, how many laps had he really done.I would be interested to know if he had done track days there previously, if he did morning session and if he was worried, did he complain

Seca is one of the few road courses in North America I've not had the opportunity to visit. So I don't have much opinion on the run off or management. That said, the track has been under siege for many years, and as a staple it will be sad if this is the final nail in the coffin. Don't step on a track if you aren't ready for the consequences.
Sav0r the adventure.

There is no Personal Responsibility with a very large majority of people.
"It's not my fault I fucked up, someone should have stopped me from fucking up. Now Pay Me!".
And sadly, there are Judges and Lawyers who want to make a name for themselves rather than enforce the law, will sit back and say..."By God you're right! There should've been a warning label stating You should never juggle electric chainsaws in the shower while simultaneously masturbating with a slapchop and eating a snickers bar... when you have a peanut allergy! Mr Peanut, Black and Decker, Vince, and Mother Nature need to be held accountable!!

This.
What a joke.
I think even his lawyer thinks itís a joke as they even named Mazda as a defendant even though all they do is pay to have their name put up there.
Also who cuts their demands by 2/3 after the first rejection?

What a dink.

Been following this for a bit.

Going to be interesting.

Whoever thought sandbags in the immediate area of the track was a good idea, is a moron. That turns what could be a simple run off, and rejoin, into a serious injury.

I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it. I certainly don't want track days, or groups like AHRMA and Wera to suffer, but damn, who's stupid enough to put sand bags around like that? I guess, what it boils down to; Was it simply a racing accident, or negligence on the organizers behalf. You could argue it either way, if you're being objective.

  • Reminds me of...me No, I'm sure of it. I hate him
There's 2 sides to every coin.

The guy is a total douche for suing for the crazy amount of money that he is suing for.

On the other hand though I believe he has a right to do so. The company putting on the event has a responsibility for the safety of the riders, putting a damn sandbag anywhere near the track IS in my book gross negligence. In a car event it would be fine, but for a motorcycle day no way. That's a way to get someone killed who should have just slid out.

You guys cant tell me that if they randomly placed concrete barriers in the run-off areas that it would still be the riders fault? Same thing, it's a danger to the rider and should not be there. There is a reason turns on a track are free of obstructions, so that WHEN not IF you run off you don't die. Putting things there be it a sand bag, a concrete barrier or a 9 foot rubber dildo is unacceptable if you ask me.

I think he has every right to sue for medical expenses, but is a total asshole for trying to get 15 million out of it.
