WSBK extends condolences to Oscar McIntyre

The World Superbike community speaks of its sadness at the death of 17-year-old Oscar McIntyre during the Australian Superstock 600 support race.
The World Superbike paddock has extended its sympathy to the family and friends of 17 year-old Oscar McIntyre, who was tragically killed in an Australian Superstock 600 race prior to Superpole.

The youngster sustained fatal injuries when he crashed during the early stages of the Superstock race, a tragedy that has left many in the paddock deeply saddened:

Infront
“Tissot-Superpole today was cancelled after a fatal accident suffered by young Australian Superstock 600 rider Oscar McIntyre in a support race before the session was due to start. Infront Motor Sports and the entire SBK paddock offer their condolences to the McIntyre family and all those affected by his loss.”

Tom Sykes
“Pole position has come with mixed emotions because of some very bad news and first and foremost I want to pass on my condolences to the family and friends of Oscar McIntyre."

Max Biaggi
“Any statement seems superfluous. We are very saddened about what happened. We don't know the details but suspending the session seemed like the logical thing to do.”

Jonathan Rea
“It was a bit of a weird situation without having a Superpole, so we were just sitting and waiting to go out. I didn't know at the time but afterwards I got told that a young rider in the Aussie 600 class, Oscar McIntyre, lost his life. So, before I talk about my day, I want to send my thoughts and regards to his family and friends.”

Hiroshi Aoyama
“I also want to send my best wishes to the family of the rider who died today.”

Carlos Checa
“First of all I want to send my condolences to McIntyre's family, a terrible tragedy. Superpole was understandably cancelled as a result.”

“I want to give my sincere condolences to the family of Oscar McIntyre first of all and his accident puts all other things into perspective."

Davide Giugliano
“I was shocked and sorry to hear about McIntyre and send my condolences to his loved ones.”

BMW
“This incident has deeply saddened every member of Team BMW Motorrad Motorsport. We send our sympathies to Oscar McIntyre's family and want to show our respects for them and the young rider at this difficult time.”

Max Biaggi “Any statement seems superfluous. We are very saddened about what happened. We don't know the details but suspending the session seemed like the logical thing to do.” First time I have agreed with anything Max has said in a very long time. Oscar joins Marco in being a shining star that leaves us too soon.
