USA, A Racing Incident

All types of motorsport carry their own risks, but it would be fair, and correct, to say that no competitor ever seeks to cause another injury. In these days of high-speed communication and the use of social media, it is very easy for a comment or story to gain ground rapidly, often with disregard to the facts.

Team Bimota Alstare have noticed, with growing concern, a series of comments regarding the crash of Sylvain Barrier and Christian Iddon in race 2 at Laguna Seca and, because of the large number of uninformed comments, have decided to respond to the various allegations. It would be easy for the team to put out a statement on Christian’s behalf, but we have decided to let Christian explain the incident by himself – especially as no media person has tried to contact him and get his side of the story.
