    The Macau GP was Red flagged twice, the second incident looked absolutely horrendous, but below report lifted from the article seems to suggest there were no life threatening injuries! Here's wishing a speedy recovery to all the riders that fell, it's a hell of a dangerous place to race!

    A huge crash at Police involved Daniel Kruger, Didier Grams, Erno Kostamo, Michael Sweeney, Phillip Crowe, Derek Shiels and, with sunlight fading over the Guia circuit, the race was suspended.

    Kruger, Kostamo and Shiels have all been taken to hospital for further assessment, but all are conscious and there are no life-threatening injuries.

    No mate not good at all! the first guy to go down certainly took a beating with the following pack hitting him, very scary place to race that!

    Yes Bill, seen this on Sunday, very nasty, thank goodness there were no worse injuries, as you say, scary circuit and doesn't make one iota of sense to race it to me, did you also see the Zarco incident in the GP, jeez he was lucky!!

    Just read that the officials have reneged on their decision not to declare a result and have given Rutter the win. :expressionless:

    Well that is what I heard first yesterday, even Hicky's own FB feed said that Rutter had been awarded the win, then later in the day Clubsport news said there was no result declared ... confused.com! :confused:
