  12. Got a good friend who just got there today as well for his first time in a long time, will likely hear about what happened from him soon.

    Kid died doing what he loved, i would rather go out in that way. RIP.
  13. RIP Oscar. :(
  14. Bewdie, I thought mine didn't appear because I told some guy to 'feckoff'
    But it's because I'm smart! :))

    Seriously, his death was unnecessary. So many arskholes in the world, just waisting oxygen, and this young fellah is taken instead. It makes me violent!
  15. Yes please. I need to understand how it happened so I can rest my brain. Some detail beyond the usual sh!t in the press, would sincerely be appreciated.

  16. got this from another forum

    "From what can be ascertained with the limited information available at this time, and subject to a coroner's investigation and thus not to be treated as fact; the incident unfolded after Oscar McIntyre crashed a few laps in to the race. His Yamaha continued on at turn one and ran across the infield all the way down to turn three, where it careered across the circuit as other riders were navigating the fast 200km/h + turn three; causing havoc."

    similar to simo ?
  17. was down there yesterday but didnt see footage of any 'impact' it may have been showed but I certainly didnt see it.
    Sad times for his family and friends, RIP
  18. RIP Oscar.

    If he has gone straight on from turn one in front of bikes coming around into turn 3 the poor guy wouldn't have stood a chance. If that's what happened then it was nothing like Simo. They fang outta turn 2 into 3 awful rapid-ish. Really feel for the two guys who hit him too.
  19. Will do if and when mate!
