Yes thanks. Broken collar bone ..
and bike lol. However I came first in the days competition with my earlier 9.26 :)
Great help from the staff at Santa Pod and the helmet, leathers and boots did a great job too :)
The kick in the balls was driving home and breaking down and hanging around for four hours for a recovery truck at the roadside in Northants.

That sucks man, breaking down on way home adds insult to injury. Good luck getting it all back together for next season!

Thanks :)
No the smoke is the tyre on locked engine .
Its a big skid combined with engine letting go :)
Track is dry.
When rear locks its like being on Ice :)

Ive got to have a plate screwed in at the hospital next few days.
The bike needs a bit more I should guess.
Hoping to get it back from the track next week :)

I hope your recovery goes well


do you think this was a top end or bottom end induced failure?

Thanks Scott.
I think it was maybe a rod/piston . On the bike there was no mechanical noise, it just locked going up gears. In video it almost sounds like clutch is slipping.Wont know till i get it back.

Damn....happy you are ok! How bad is the bike?

I dont know what bikes like yet. But the guy looking aftercit at the track said it didnt look too bad. He commented it was scratched down the plastics and that even the levers werent bust.
Im not expecting miracles
Apparently a big oil down :)
Will know more when I collect, hopefully next week. It slid ftom just shortfof the 1/8 and almost made the 1/4 :)

Reviewing the video in slomo it appears the motor lets go at moment of smoke and dumps oil straight onto track and rear tyre :)

So I think probably a rods gone through the block / cases ! Boom!
