So Valkyrie you believe the organizers should keep the 'paying' customers informed second by second. I think that takes a distant third seat considering what has arisen. I was there and I know they (the organizers) had more pressing matters to attend to.

Valkyrie- the accident was serious and has ended a young teenagers life. Spectators should come last.

Yeah, Valkyrie, that would be so heart warming for his kin to hear the announcement over a loud speaker

When nothing is said it is usually bad news, there are families and due process to consider before the paying/watching public can be told. Have some compassion........

You're digging a bigger hole for yourself Valkyrie so best to zip it and rethink your dedication to the sport. If you don't like it then don't come and watch and support easy as that.
Now to what matters the most. Deepest sympathy to Oscar McIntyres family, friends, team mates and supporters.

I got what you are saying but that was a post that should have remained in your head. Not because you thought it, means you should have said it. As some one on here said there were more pressing matters that any "paying fan" would understand. Sorry for your inconvenience (sarcasm intended)
With that said...I was not there but as a FAN of the sport and even though I do not know of prayers are with his family and friends.
RIP..Race on brother!!
