This is what happens when car people arrange bike races.

This is from a previous race in the most highly regarded Swedish national series, Pro Superbike.
The class is held during the STCC (Swedish Touring Car Championship) week ends and is aired on TV etc.

The track is Knutstorp and it is always a lot of trouble there.
The clip starts when Robert Gull has got the green flag and is out on his sighting lap.

Anyone see more than green flags around the track?



The weirdest thing about the whole incident is that no one in race direction got any fines or anything.

Well. The point was that they all got the green flag wich means the track is clear and they can go around it safely. As you could see they had a bucnh of cars and a lot of people on the track right after a crest!
It was only inches from riders or marshals getting seriously injured because the race director told them to wave the green fleag. There should have been yellow and white flags out all along the track to warn the riders of other vehicles on the track and no overtaking.

That guy is a fricken' idiot and as my dad used to say - he couldn't organize a piss-up in a brewery. Not to mention he's a condescending, arrogant wanker.

I'd love for the manufacturers to kick his ass to the kerb by forcing his resignation - trouble might be that then he's head North to 'help' RACE.

yea, Mr.RACE himself. Whaaaat a douche. The funniest part is that his little company is called "professional motorsports." what a joke.

tisk tisk for not watching AMA. Musta missed out on the Mat and Ben show.

Altho I don't think I've watched a race this year, fuck'em. Show's over folks.

It was really close that one rider ran over one of the corner workers and another one was inched away from hitting a car.
