What the hell were they thinking putting a turn on a road racing track? That makes it way more dangerous.

  Anything with two wheels.
Dude got butt hurt that he crashed in front of his buddies, showing he isn't as bads-ass as he tries to look like.

Blames everyone but himself.

This makes me think about peeps buzzing around the Ridge without helmets. Yes, it happens and someday somebody is going to smash his/her pumpkin and blame it on staff for not screaming the rules at him/her enough.

I'd like to hear more about this. I've seen stupid stuff at track days but always by people wearing all the gear.

I was at a track day when a guy was doing wheelies in the pits with no helmet. He 12 o'clocked, flew off the back, knocked his head and died. End of story. His family knew it was his fault for weeding himself out of the gene pool.

Mr Kim is just a pure MORON....Watch the video, I swear its as if he was trying to miss the turn.

Also, that day he was not at the riders meetings...far as I am concerned, case closed.

Either way, this sucks for all of us track guys. If he wins, this could be a ripple effect to more lawsuits

I wouldn't worry about more lawsuits. Most tracks will probably shut down or at least end public track days.

I is good to see the right result in this but how could it take six years to get there? I hate to think how much the legal fees cost the track. Hopefully the plaintiff will have to pay them, but I do not know if that is how it works.

Yeah, that's a long time to "sweat it out" while continuing to feed your legal bills.

I'm thinking this Kim dude didn't know there was a video of him crashing before he decided this was a good idea. all the lawyers will make money and I'm pretty sure Kim will be the one paying them all. it's too bad..his little two wheel vehicle is pretty cool..why isn't he?

I thought you sign the waiver and that was the end of the story.
If he won, all the track days would be over. All the autox events would be over as well.

Great to hear the right outcome won!

The system is jacked, my wife and I were sued civilly for $80,000, she rear ended a guy at 2.5 miles an hour, it went to a jury trial that lasted 5 days..People suck.

In the end after the attorney made his $50k in fees (car insurance pays that), it was determined, he sucks, lost and paid court fees of $1,200.00

Great news.

I was reading Kim's self-congratulatory website, where there's a pic of him with a Dr, who's pointing to an x-ray or something, the caption reads:

"Lit Motors CEO, Danny Kim shares details
on his motorcycle testing accident at
Laguna Seca Raceways, his road
to recovery and his experience with
immobility."

"Motorcycle testing accident." Sure, whatever you say bro.
