Bloody hell, thats a hell of a save. Very close to being mash potato. Shows it pays not to just ram on the brakes. His head must have been spinning with adrenaline after that.

Once Id got back the marshals came over looking for me as the police would need a statement. I explained that the orange Porsche had just passed and I felt the line was clear for myself as well and the Seat had pulled out on me without looking. The driver refused to admit any blame or say sorry as he wanted to go through insurance. Luckily another car was just behind me and they had separately given a statement saying exactly the same thing to the police.
Whaddafack? I can understand the insurance 'claim', if a separate policy had been taken out for playing on the ring. But the 5-0? What has it got to do with them?

It's a public toll road so it's a bit of both really.

In the event of an accident the police will get involved from what i've heard.

I can see how that happened but does the fault not lie with the biker?

Never been there, but pretty sure the rules on the ring are to let faster people pass on the left?

I always though the onus was on the person overtaking? In fact, I seem to recall reading advice about taping mirrors up, or even removing them as they are not needed on a track. This was for bike track days rather than cars I might add.

It's an odd one, it's like the car's moving offline for some reason.

Pretty sure the Seat tries to overtake someone and then notices the Porsche overtaking him at the same time. You can see the 3 cars involved below.

http://i68.tinypic.com/2s1ljl2.png

Seat guy then abandons his overtake until the Porsche is passed him, then goes for it again and obviously doesn't notice the biker coming up on his left side.

I'm still sure the main person at fault is the biker.

Inb4 poor obs.

Hmmmmm I'm in two minds about fault here.

With the flash of the indicator, the third (black) car that can be seen from halfway round the carousel (implying a reason to swerve left to overtake), and the fairly clear difference in speed between all the vehicles (Porsche, Seat and black car) I want to say poor obs from biker.
But at the same time I can also imagine the situation and seeing the Porsche go through and expecting the Seat to stay on line, behind the black car for the next left, allowing a bike to slip up the inside, putting the onus on the Seat driver to check mirrors (tough ask, in that situation I know!).

Either eventuality; fucking good save to hit a car, then the barrier and keep it upright.

Even as a mountain biker, I think i'd have dropped that on the grass.

Car is at fault, it's tourist day so normal road rules apply, he overtook without yielding to the faster traffic in the overtaking lane, no different to getting sideswiped by a car pulling into your lane without checking it's safe on the motorway while you pass at faster speed.

That makes sense, still gives room for an accident.
