Don't care if this is a repost...this is bad judgement call because the bike was still in the impact zone:

Ohh the humanity!!

And now look at the chaos that followed....

who the fuck did NOT red flag that!!!!????
That one corner worker is probably near death if not dead...

this happened at the track I race at (NHIS) the corner worker was just knocked out and didnt have really any injuries except a few bruises. the guy video taping the race is a member of GDC (Tapper) and a member of my race team

The corner workers should not of run out on a live track. It is better to let the racers avoid a stationary object ( while being pushed wide by corneroworkers ) than to avoid moving objects on the track. They should only go on course if NO ( and I mean NO ) bikes are near the corner and flags are waving like crazy.

But yes, that should of been a red flag the at the instant the bike caem to rest in the center of the race line.

dont understand how the guy didnt see what was right in front of him>?

I never raced but wasnt everyone else slowing down? couldnt he notice!

It's called object fixation.

Object fixation is the act of focusing on something to the extend that you will actually ride in to the object you are looking at. This is a phenomenon I learned about when I was riding motocross. Inevitably if you looked at the tree or rut in the course you would find yourself riding in to it. If you looked past the hazard, you would more than likely ride past it.
