Whats with that corner that it caught so many? It looks like a downhill entry, and then a rise, but not that bad. From what I can see, it looks like people came in hot and too far to the inside, then panicked and lifted. The FWD cars pushed and ran off wide, and the mid/rear engine cars spun.

The only common threads I saw were:
1. Not squaring the turn off, too far inside and
2. Guys on motorcycles that wear Aerostich suites just don't belong on the track

Did the guy in the black BMW with the dual silver stripe eat it twice?

And is it bad form to laugh if you do DEs? Bad karma headed my way? I generally believe it's unlucky to be superstitious.

Yes, that was a bad high side. Luckily, it looks like he walked away. But that was crazy, bikes and cars on the track at the same time! And on top of that, the course is unbelievably dangerous for a bike. No run off and Armco to cushion you when you fall off. I've low sided and broken ribs on a safe moto track, I would not get on that track and push it.

Agreed. It's one thing to dump and get bumped by another bike, rather than a car running over your body.

And while I have never high sided, I have experienced a few tank slappers that gave me the Hershey squirts!
