“Out of respect for our dear Matheus, and especially the family, all activities for the day were immediately terminated, the remaining race was canceled and the race in which the accident occurred was immediately interrupted by a red flag. At this moment, the organization’s priority is to dedicate all its attention and support to Matheus’s family, ”they added.
The death of Matheus Barbosa once again put the SuperBike Brazil category at the center of controversy. That of the 23-year-old pilot is the third death in a year.
Between April and May 2019, also in Interlagos, the pilots Maurício Paludete and Danilo Berto lost their lives. The championship was stopped for a few months. He returned after some works that were done to the circuit to increase security.
At that time, Padulete’s father highlighted the danger of the Interlagos circuit: “It is very dangerous. That escape zone can’t be like this. The barrier has to have more tires, it is very unprotected. It’s all wrong, the grass in the loophole is high and the riders skid. And the escape area is very short. If a rider goes out there fast, he’s going to hit hard ”.
At that time, it was the Brazilian Motorcycling Confederation that took action on the matter. The CMB supervised the works that allowed SuperBike to run again. It is expected that, from this new death, he can cancel the competition again.
The most popular category of motorcycling in Brazil
SuperBike Brasil was founded in 2010 by former pilot and businessman Bruno Corano. It quickly became the most popular category in Brazilian motorcycling.
The category has six manufacturers: Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Yamaha, BMW and Ducati.
