Nice series, like the action of the mishaps, I would expect the KTM to have gone down after hitting the white line that looks oily. Keep the superbikes coming

Not oily at all. The corner in the wet is known for wiping people out. Even the locals who were racing had tumbles there. KTM went down and shattered across the track holding up the race for about 10mins.

Okay thanks for that info. I was wondering if that shinny stuff. So you all race in the rain, and do not stop the race till after it dries.

Racing in the rain makes it exciting

Nah when it gets to a point they will declare it a wet race (which they did) then if the rain gets HEAVY they stop the race otherwise the track is the track and you gotta learn the lines. Respect the track and it will respect you is the way I put it.
