Here is Mark Fincham's crash, guess I must warn again, this was a fatal crash.

Is this your capture?

Yes, both BSB ones are, why do you ask?

At the time I wrote that comment, I falsely thought a copy of it had appeared on YouTube.
There are a couple of videos that show his accident but non of which are yours.

Oh, well I'm in two minds over to whether to buy a proper capture box or stick to the wife's iPhone lol.

A guy just had one of those "oh shit I hope the cameras missed that" moments when he fell off on the slowing down lap at the MotoAmerica Superbike/Supersport race at Sonoma just now.... Sadly for him the cameras didn't miss it:



Sorry about the lack of audio, still figuring this stuff out, last time I did capturing firewire had just been launched :haha:

I've really been looking forward to this.

The first race of the BSB at Cadwell Park is about to start in 15 minutes.

Cadwell is such a great track, especially for bikes.

Absolutely!

Narrow track, elevation changes, difficult corners. All in all a very challenging and fun to watch circuit.

Fantastic days racing, as usual for Cadwell, especially the 'nobody wants to win' Superbike race 2.
