Holy cow. The tosser who lost the belly pan needs to be banned from the track. The fact the other rider escaped major injury was unbelievable and doesn't change the facts of the incident.
Thanks from redfire

That's just nuts. I've seen a kneepuck fly up in the air on the straight and changed lines to avoid it. Just as deadly. But a taped on bellypan shouldn't even have made it on the track. This makes the providers liable as well.

Agreed, WTF happened to allow this to get through tech? Fire those tech inspectors.

We'll race wise you bring your bike to tech with the bellypan off so the bellypan and the drainplug can be inspected, so I'd place more blame on the rider. Trackdays I've never been required to remove my bellypan so I'd place the blame equally on rider and tech if these were their procedures.

Last trackday at Chuckwalla someone's GoPro fell off and hit my buddy right in the knuckle guard of his right glove and took a huge gouge out of it. Had it hit any other area it would have broken his braking hand and would have been an ugly situation. Scary shit.

WMRRA requires Racers to wire their GoPro to the bike. Many trackdays don't.

Holy crap that brings new meaning to the term laid out.

Very happy to read he is okay. It certainly could have been much worse.

This video goes viral. Local yellow press made headlines:

They claim that Joshua stated he'll never race again. I wonder...
