Firstly, I'm a fan of bike racing... I have participated in motorsport for a while and I'm coming from the same place as most of the "let them race" brigade. However... there has to be a line drawn - I personally feel something has to give, in this day and age its not acceptable to run an event where we almost know people will be killed... Why not limit the bikes to 100hp or something? There are several ways the risk could be mitigated (not totally eliminated) - but people dying should not be 'just part of it' - there is no glory in being killed in sport, its utterly disrespectful to the family and Yoshi to say you're "devastated" - then continue working on two bikes and no doubt celebrating wins/podiums next week.
