Latest post of the previous page:

During last weekends DLC (German Endurance Cup) race at Oschersleben there has been a fatality and the race was abandonded in the process. The organizers did not name a rider yet, 'to give family and friends space to grief'. From my own research it seems to be a rider of Team Borgelt. But that's it so far

If the unnamed rider actually was driving for Team Borgelt, it has to be Marco Conrad

Dennis Lippert posted this on his facebook page:
Oschersleben Yamaha R6 Cup

Wir hatten einfach kein Glück
Ich musste das Wochenende erstmal sacken lassen.

Nachdem wir den Motor eingebaut hatten und ich noch eine Stunde einfahren konnte, bin ich am Sonntag motiviert und konzentriert ins Rennen gegangen, um doch ein paar Pünktchen mitzunehmen.

Vorab ein rießen Dankeschön an meine Mechaniker Fredi Kruske, Jürgen Henssen, Marco Lippert, die das ganze Wochenende vollgas gegeben haben, trotz der Rückschläge!
Danke !!
Danke auch für die Hilfe Dominik Borgelt und Marco Conrad

Aber es sollte an diesem Wochenende einfach nicht sein.....
Von Platz 36 gestartet, nach kaotischer ersten Runde 11 Plätze gut gemacht und auf 25 vorgefahren, dann hinter Jessi Langstädtler #69 Fanpage in Kurve 2 eingebogen.
Leider kam sie dabei zu Sturz und ich konnte nicht mehr ausweichen, damit war das Wochenende zu Ende.

An dieser Stelle Gute Besserung Jessi

So viel Pech gehabt, tief Enttäuscht und frustriert, bin ich trotzdem froh, dass ich gesund nach Hause fahren konnte.
Leider war das nicht für jeden der Fall
Gute Besserung an alle Verletzten Fahrer!

Mein Beileid an die Familie des verstorbenen Fahrers. R.I.P


Grüße,
Dennis

The past 10 days have sadly not been too kind to the world of motorcycling.

On August, 4 Angel Nieto passed away following a quad bike accident.
RIP, Angel :rip:
Image

On August, 6 BSB Superstock 1000 rider Mark Fincham succumbed to injuries sustained in a freak accident at Thruxton.
RIP, Mark :rip:
Image

On August, 10 British road racer Jamie Hodson succumbed to injuries sustained in an race incident during the Dundrod 150 road races that involved his brother Rob as well. I had brief chats with both brothers during the TT fortnight as well as the third heavy injured rider, Gavin Lupton. Due to have briefly known Jamie, his death has hit me somewhat. This below is my photo of Jamie, coming home tenth during the 2017 Supertwin TT race at Cronk-Ny-Mona.
RIP, Jamie :rip:
Image

On August, 12 63-year old club racer Frank Dignan lost his life in an accident during a superbike race at East Fortune.
RIP, Frankie :rip:
Image

On August, 14 the first female Afro-American AMA pro racer, Joi SJ Harris, succumbed to injuries sustained when performing a stunt during the filming of a movie called 'Deadpool 2'
RIP, Joi :rip:
Image

I'd like to express my heartfelt sympathies to all families and friends of those above, particularly to Rob Hodson, who must have a real tough, challenging time right now.
