Re: Post your Race/Trackday Crash pics

I left the streets to avoid certain hazards, apparently deer doesn't know the difference. Only in my second session I met my fate with a large doe (she appeared large in my peripheral vision). I suffered a broken clavicle, and 2 additional ribs. See pixs below for body damage. Stator cover may need to be replaced, rear set, shield, helmet, lower faring, stay, clip on, front fender, fiber glass repair and bondo another repaint. All because of a damn lost deer. Bold items were recently replaced due to previous incident.









Gear did its job






But I fared better than this fellow!

Re: Post your Race/Trackday Crash pics

Here's two guys at summit point week and a half ago! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FW7ktbJzpPs Yep deer don't listen around here either.

unfortunatly my only track get off was a forgot the front brake rule in the grass. Photog didn't get pics. So I guess I fail at contributing properly to this thread.

bmfgsxr- Was that at NSS? We were up there the last race watching and guy went down along the back straight. Looks to be about the same place as you in the pic. If it was you hope you are all healed up now!

Re: Post your Race/Trackday Crash pics

i was on the bridgestone rains, they are amazing tires. i just got too greedy with the throttle, and ran out of talent.

turk, that was a few years ago at new jersey motorsports park thunderbolt course, on a cold, wet, march day.
