Speed is pretty subjective, going fast doesn't have to mean recklessness. I don't think anyone expected an incident like that to occur, they always did use a TM to fetch riders back, that was the procedure that had been followed and was well known by all concerned, riders, marshals, car drivers etc.   

History has proven otherwise. Sadly.

its important to get fresh eyes on a scene. If you witness crash even as a bystander your capacity for rational thought is not optimal. A travelling marshal or course inspection team can take charge as they arrive with a resolution mindset. 

I've been marshalling for over 10 years and we've had quite a few "offs" , sadly including two fatals . The TM , on arrival , is then in charge. The occupants of the course inspection car  have never taken charge and have seldom even turned up and/or stopped other than to pick  up  retired  riders to return them to the grandstand. :flowers: . I see no reason for a course/VIP car to have a 'blast' around the course.

Cool, might have a go. How hard can it be?!

Get your National licence first. Join the Andreas Racing Association, apply for your licence and start racing as a novice.  A full season should get you your license. But then, you’ll need to go across to get your international licence. And you’ll need to finish in the top three of a certain amount of races (it was a long time ago - I can’t remember how many). After hat you can claim your international licence and sign up! 

You might also need to buy a bike.

You did know that, didn’t you?

I think that comment was an outrageous attempt to make people turn purple in annoyance. Thankfully no-one saw fit to rise to the bait.

Decapitation is quite common in the TT, far more than people realise.

It is described as a "serious head injury" in the coroners report
