Maxton today
« on: October 24, 2009, 02:36:19 PM »
Not sure of the name, bike guy just called and said an older gentleman on a busa went down in the shutdown area, and passed away about an hour ago.

Said he had been to bonneville before and wanted to try out maxton, RIP, man this sucks.

According to posts on Landracing.com the rider was "Guy Lombardi" on an orange hayabusa.
Any day on a motorcycle like this that ends just needing parts and labor is a good day.

Terrible news. Leslie & I met Guy at World of Speed 2008. We all went to the University of Florida, and had fun. He was very enthusiastic, friendly, and fast. Rest in peace Guy.

Guy was a Tiger Racing sponsored racer.  I tech-ed him in Friday and he was in great spirits and couldn't wait to ride the Maxton Mile.  He made a good clean pass of about 191 and went thru the traps without incident.  Moments later the emergency horn rang and the crash crews were on the course.  We know nothing more than he went off course just before long shutdown.  Accident investigation is in progress and the family has arrived here at Maxton.  
He went doing what really excited him in life, LSR.  He attended Bonneville and made many friends with who ever he met.  His excitement about LSR was infectious and you couldn't help but smile when you talked with him.
The entire Maxton and LSR family grieves at this loss and our prayers and condolences go out to his family and friends.
