THANK’SAugust 11, 2010 at 12:55 am #64163Dave InnesParticipant
I’m okay except I won’t be able to finish the season.
In turn 1, or 13, I clipped the inside barrier with my right front. My kart spun and slid sideways into the rubber at the exit of the turn. The tires grabbed and I flipped. I guess it’s a rookie mistake getting too close to the apex on a temp track.
Anyway, Jim was there in a flash to help me and clear the kart off the track. I knew I was injured because I heard a little snap as I landed.
There was good news at the Emergency room. I only fractured my left tie rod – I mean left collarbone (6 weeks).
It was a good race with lots of passing and action.
Race with you soon.August 11, 2010 at 1:35 am #64164Angel RamirezParticipant
GLAD TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE OK, MY BROTHER(LUIS) WAS RIGHT BEHIND YOU WHEN THAT HAPPEND AND HE WAS THE ONE THAT S….T HIS PANTS WHEN YOU FLIPPED.GET WELL SOON AND SEE YOU AT THE TRACK.August 11, 2010 at 2:05 am #64165stacey cookParticipant
heck Dave in the old motocross days we were back racing with a brace in 2 weeks so you should be good as new by next weekend. :loony:August 11, 2010 at 2:45 am #64166gunter desantiParticipant
Glad to hear your O.K. mate. You certainly had more than your share of bad this week end.
Hope you can get to the club races, I need you there to make sure I pre- grid on time. :loony:
All the best Chrissy and Gunter.August 11, 2010 at 5:55 am #64167Rick SchmidtParticipant
Sorry for your misfortune Dave and damn glad you’ll recover and make it back.
RickAugust 11, 2010 at 12:34 pm #64168Eddy WyattParticipant
Sorry to hear about your flip. Get well soon Dave. Tires as barriers on a kart track in any form are things to avoid… I learned that the hard way in 2004.
EddyAugust 11, 2010 at 2:48 pm #64169cgordonParticipant
Sorry about your accident, hope you recover soon. I agree with Eddy about tire barriers for karts.

Dave I’m glad you’re okay and that your stuff was taken care of when you left. A little duct tape and you’ll be as good as new!
And don’t let Luis send you the dry cleaning bill for his shorts!

The rubber I was referring to was the rubber laid down on the track. There were no tire barriers.
Sorry for the confusion.
Thanks everyone and see you soon.
DaveAugust 12, 2010 at 12:17 am #64172Eddy WyattParticipant
Understand, that must of been some rubber build up on the exit… Maybe your chassis was set up too tight as well..
Anyway and most importantly, hope you have a speedy recovery and can get back in the drivers seat real soon.
