Due to an accident that occurred @ Isle of Man, I will not be able to place many pictures of three racing days very soon.
I broke my arm so sorting 30GB of material will take me some time unfortunately. Editing those pics will take even longer so bare with me, I will do my best to put a few very nice shots at this page very soon!
Let us all first consider the lives that were lost during the most amazing road race of all times! IOM riders are all heroes, the circuit the most dangerous in the world and all people who do not dare racing here are instantly forgiven... for this is truly only for the brave!
Yoshinari Matsushita RIP
You will be missed forever and you are in the hearts of many! It's all too sad, that probably a safety measurement cost you your life at Ballacrye. The boy (13, son of a former sidecar racer) who told you just before the race about the dangers of this particular circuit was so shocked to hear about your death, it'll stay with him for the rest of his life! The boy is a friend of mine and we cried together for you. All the best to your family, friends and collegue-racers! You have my everlasting respect!
One Spanish roadracer got hurt, not severely but I can tell you I felt real bad for you!
As far as I know you hit a stone wall going through the Verandah section of the course, breaking your femur and shattering your knee cap. I was in the same room with you at Nobles Hospital but the medicines made me so sleepy that I didn't recognize you. My girlfriend has spoken with your friend who was with you for some time, I don't know if you remember. She told me that your knee was badly hurt and that she told you about Valladolid. I hope so much that all will be very well soon and you will recover completely! You also have my everlasting respect! España, me gusta mucho!
Branko is still stable according to his own website after his terrible accident during practice week. Out of respect for my fellow Dutchman I will not give any updates about his recovery, please refer to:
