Not a good year, that's one crazy track as always, not much room for error.

Buttonwillow, clockwise is a good example, the esses are one lane, you just sit and wait until you get to the last turn before you can make a move. Club racing might be a bit different with a greater speed differential but in spec racing everybody is about the same speed and the esses are no place to pass.

Reminds me of the Dale Earnhardt Sr crash.

RIP to the riders, I would like to see the footage of how the accident happened. Looked like a vicious low side which sent both the rider & the bike into the barriers.

The second vid is removed unfortunately.

Interesting to see the standings at the end of the race, John McGuiness.
He's the most decorated rider in the TT isle of man. Something like 12 wins or something, which is honestly unheard of.

Interesting to see him riding in this as well. Brilliant rider, even well into his 40's.

Supposedly he just got the car not too long ago. It's actually a LHD so the speculation is that he's not used to it, clipped the right side on the wall and bounced the car towards the outside of the corner. He was sitting on the impact side of the car. He was a pretty experienced driver as well. He won a different race from the back last year.

Looks like both drivers were dead on impact.
