cantonRC Not only did he chop the throttle he was cutting across the track not maintaining a line. There were people standing on the side of the track this should have been red flagged for that alone.
I was at Beaver when it was still Beaver a guy had crashed on the back straight and was picking up parts on the side of the track and the session stayed green. This was a brand new BMW

Red flag normally indicates something serious such as a down rider or bike on the track or in the way.

Wonder if the guy that saw the yellow thought to slow down...not that there was actual debris on the track.
Yellow is appropriate for debris.

James_03_rc Come on guys, the CBR just wanted to show the Duci that it had Ohlins too

What do ya think? The CBR high sided do to a rear tire skid release then was kicked up and over the duci by the ducs rear tire?

cantonRC The last time we went to Beaver run now Pittrace there were a lot of accidents some of them were pretty bad
Someone high sided themself in front of me right in the middle of the track at the bottom of the hill. I'm glad I didn't have a camera and wished I could erase it from my mind.
Every riders meeting they tell you not to chop the throttle because the guy behind you may not have seen the flag.
Were going there next weekend I'm hoping for a enjoyable day.

gibbonater Originally I thought that was a rider slamming down on top of the rider, but it was a bike. These accidents are nuts.

Another missed yellow flag

A few weeks ago I posted a video from Beaverun racetrack of an accident caused by someone failing to slow on a yellow flag. This is the link to that thread, and here is that video:

Here is another amazing video of someone causing an accident by missing the yellow at Brainard International Raceway.
