  1. holy crapola batman! i woulda run faster than he did! and got down on my knees and prayed when it hit the tree :shock:
  2. To be fair, he didn't have a lot of choice but to hope that the tree was stronger than an angry Skoda ! Gives you a new appreciation of the risky lives that flaggies live......
  3. I would hate to see in his underwear :shock:
  4. RC and myself were photographing a C Grade motorcycle meeting at Oran Park back in the seventies. They were only using the short circuit and two or three bikes tangled in the left -hander at the end of the main straight.
    One of the bikes ditched its rider and 'stood up' and continued, riderless, across the grass BEHIND US, very close, and back onto the track at the next right hander and took out another bike. It all happened so quickly we would not have had a chance of dodging it anyway! Just lucky it didn't hit us, that's all.
