MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident


MotoMarc: Don't know the exact rules but if a racer crosses beyond the painted curb/corner lines and runs across by making a straight line through the turn then I think they can be penalized as that would give them an advantage over other riders using the proper lines through a turn. But I'm sure that is up to the officials to recognize then properly enforce.
But can you imagine how hard that would be to implement or how difficult to spot amongst a freight train of close riders? Was he 2mm over the edge of the track or 1mm inside? That is why I suggest some proximity tec. with rider feedback. Something like that must exist somewhere. Another non tech alternative would be to have a slight drop off track (a small kerb say an inch or two) at the corners which then meets the level of the track on the straight. Why? Well the idea being if you go off track you will not crash but will definately be noticed as being "off track" as it will be irrefutable. And you

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident


There must be some technology that can be used rather than astroturf which is simply very dangerous. Cut a small groove at the edge of the track and line it with something that can 'speak' to a transponder on the bike. Each bike has a transponder mid belly pan and 3 lights on the dash that relate to the proximity of the transponder to the trackside installation. The lights indicate proximity to track edge: Close, Closer, Too far (Off Track). I'm sure the racer's brain can link the lights to the bike position and also know that hitting the final light will result in some form oftime penalty.
