You can watch from the start or jump to about 1:40 to go straight to the carnage.

I've always thought that was a rather stupid place to hold a race. My opinion remains unchanged. Jebus H Crisp!

Looks like normal traffic in Macau, just fancier cars.

This definitely supports your opinion (and mine). Don't know whether this happened before or after the GT race.

British rider Hegarty dies in Macau GP crash (motorsport.com)
Quote:
By: Jonathan Noble | 18 Nov 17

British rider Daniel Hegarty has been killed in an accident during the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix on Saturday.

The Topgun Racing Honda rider crashed at Fisherman’s Bend on lap six of the race, hitting the barriers on the outside of the circuit and losing his crash helmet.

The race was immediately red-flagged and, with it clear how serious the situation was, a decision was made not to restart it.

Hegarty was transported immediately to hospital but a statement issued by race organisers confirmed that he died while en route there.

The statement said: "Daniel's family and team have been contacted, and the Committee will ensure every assistance is extended to them.

I think I heard the announcer say this was a qualifying race for the GT race.

I understand having softer barriers to make for a safer impact, but in this case it snagged that Benz creating havoc for the following cars.
