WTF Moment At turn 1

So this is a video of a friend essentially being T-boned while riding at NJMP T-BOLT.

There are many lines going into that turn, but I have no clue what the Guy in the White / Blue Suit was thinking.

Luckily my buddy walked away with just a hairline fracture in his knee. The other rider never acknowledged nor even apologized for what happened.

Holy fark. Looks like the guy wasn't gonna make the turn and kept the bike upright before going off.

Re: WTF Moment At turn 1

Man, I'd be pissed. It may have been smart for the guy to not apologize or anything. I might have beat the crap out of him the second he walked up. It's unfortunate but that's the risk you take on the track. At least no one was seriously injured.

I myself would have apologized or perhaps asked someone to deliver an apology check for whatever I could afford. No sense in possibly escalating the situation by immediately going over to talk the the other party.

Re: WTF Moment At turn 1

It didn't look like he had begun to turn? Was there a mechanical failure?

No, he shit himself on the brakes hoping he could slow down enough to not clip that guys tire. You can't run down the inside like that in that turn. Even if he did turn on that line he had he would run so wide thrut the middle of the turn or it woulda been such a tight line he would have ran off the apron well before you'd even run onto it with any decent line.

Half track turn in there is REAL hairy

I was hit there repeatedly this year when a bike hit my tail and the brake lever was pushing my undertail which cartwheeled the bike, then it kept hitting me until I was on the edge of the track when the bike ROCKED me and shot me to the wall. I was like
