Hopefully he won't take out and injure someone else there.

BTW, I saw you at miller outside the Ducati garage sunday afternoon, recognize you from the avatar pic.

Who'd he take out and injure? He does need to relax and realize that he can't prove his worth by going balls out all the time.

Did he go under Scassa and run wide making contact, or did Scassa turn down into him? The pics and TV coverage are inconclusive.

I am suprised that Hacking is getting another shot after the incedent with Scassa, and the other antics in race 2 at Miller. Very glad he is getting it though, I think he has potential to do well in WSBK. All BS aside he did make the Kawi go fast that anyone else in WSBK, and his agressive riding is fun to watch even if I wouldnt want to be dicing it up with him..

Scassa was passing him from everything I've read and from what Jamie has said. I don't think even Luca was blaming him for it.

A lot of the issues he had was him knowing the track better and not knowing the other riders well enough to judge what they'd do in any given situation. It happens a lot with fast guys going into a whole new series or class.

It looked to me like Scassa turned in on Jamie, and Jamie did not have anywhere to go.

Luca was ahead of Jamie, Jamie tried to make a pass going into the attitudes (I believe) and he wasn't close enough. Jamie hit the back of Scassa's bike, he wasn't close enough for Luca to see him through his peripheral vision. A racing incident, but coupled with his turn one incident there was a bit of the red mist going on for sure. Intentional or not, he did take out Scassa and he did cause him injury.
