The street course in Macao is so dangerous they should not hold any motorcycle race there. It's basically Isle of Man with walls, zero run off areas.

That sucks. RIP. In the first picture I would say he needs to get his head out there a little more but if he did it would smack the wall. That doesnt look safe at all.

Anyone watch the videos on Youtube? Doesn't show the accident but does show the aftermath. The EMTs are in panic mode and you see his head bouncing around all over the place despite the neck brace meant to protect him. I wouldn't be surprised if the EMTs caused his death. They drove him to the hospital, they did not life flight him. If he was alive getting into the ambulance I can only guess the ambulance ride killed him.
