    There was a tragedy on 6th lap of Russian National Championship

    There was an accident on 6th lap of Russian National JetSki Champuonship on Staurday, 15th.

    There was a race of newbies. Ultra 250 jetski became uncontrolled because of lanyard breackage and jammed throttle cable. Racer was ejected from ski but ski continued movement on WOT and burnt into another ski, RXP.
    Second sci racer was immedeately transported to hospital but died after 6 hours of reanimation...

    Nightmare...

    Be careful on race...

    This is very sad news, is there a website or memorial page online we could leave our condolences for him and his family?

    I am very sorry to hear this news, it is a tragic accident. I send my condolences to the racers and all the families and friends of our fallen fellow competitor.

    We have not had very many fatalities in racing around the world since the beginning days, and this is a sad story to read about, no matter where you are from.
