So this past weekend we were racing, but it was VERY cold. Track was about 3 deg Celsius when we went out. Did our sighting lap and got back to the grid when they experienced some difficulties with the lights.

Instead of letting us warm the tires again after a 5 min wait, they started the race... Aftermath of a mate who raced with us with his HP4R... Also a ZX in the front :surprise:

Not sure it's only the tires, both riders that crashed were not stable on the line and the last one was crossed up.

But glad both riders are ok.

At doubleRR fest at VIR south few months ago, a rider with HP4R crashed, it was damaged badly.

Texas, South Africa?
He asked where the crash was with the HP4R.. I looked up the OP postings and figured it out that he is in South Africa. Then i asked Siri what the temp was is South Africa today and it was 5c, so I know he is in that area still. Just a little research time.

So after the race I went to him to ask if he was OK. His response: "Yes, the only thing that went through my mind during the crash was, I am so grateful that I have another one at home" :surprise:

So a real close call with the last race. On board footage of the HP4R trying to overtake myself on the pink bike (Woman's month dedication, if you want to know :grin2:). I saw him at point 99 when I already started to turn in. Luckily we both walked away from this one...

Typical result of a error where a rider tries to overtake and brakes _directly_ towards inner curb.
Never do that.

We were fighting for 3rd place and this happened at the 3rd last corner. There is no way that he would of made that corner, even if I lifted.
