Tough call. Motorcycles do require unique measures to assure reasonably safe runoff area as compared to cars. Like the hay bales you see at Woodward and temporary circuits. That's part of hosting a MC event. F1 has problems with runoff/curbing becoming part of the racing surface because they were made MC safe, and thus less effective for cars. What many of you are saying is that if the track put a telephone pole in the exit area runoff, drivers should just "know it's there" and not kill themselves on it ?

BTW, that's one of the problems with "track days". They tend to be on a tight budget, and may not have the staffing and safety equipment/personnel of a bigger sanctioned event.
