Question latest crash.

As a chief scruteneer for many years and involved in powerboat racing for longer.I was always told you keep things that involved the incident of any kind away from the MEDIA as much as you can, Where was the UIM ON THIS ONE,?? as it is spread all over the world., as for bringing up what happend in the past which has nothing to do with this, that is some thing else. Think of the family and friends that are left behind.

The video is badged UIM and H2O so it seems fair to assume that they put it up?

No-one has mentioned the "past" on here until you - At least not on this thread?

My apologies, I have done a search and they haven't held back on the details at all. Must have been a slow news day. It doesn't matter what happened before I'm sure no-one would wish that on someone.
