The following statistics are taken directly from a recently procured 2 & 4 Wheel Motorsport Steering Group Limited document titled - North West 200 - Fatalities 1929 - 2009 - which details the safety record of the NW200 real road races, presumably to demonstrate to DCAL Minister Nelson McCausland and Senior Coroner John Leckey how ongoing MCUI-UC instigated safety measures are saving lives at the flagship North West 200 bottomless money pit, our alleged safest real road race event.

What there is no mention of though, is the names of the numerous riders who have been injured, many seriously injured, many of whom have never ever recovered - nor indeed has the families been mentioned, those families that have been torn apart by the loss of a loved one, the loved one who has been so very seriously injured, a loved one who has to be cared for as they spend the rest of their lives enduring the most dreadful pains imaginable.
Since the purpose of the document is to allegedly influence DCAL officials, and allegedly persuade DCAL Minister Nelson McCausland to part with several million pounds sterling in the name of safety, it shouldn't be a surprise that such human tragedies are kept locked away in the closet with the other alleged nasty smelling skeletons of the MCUI-UC and their alleged cohorts.
