Looks like too much throttle then chopping it, maybe cold tires

The gas tank thing on the new R6 is a known issue. Some companies have starting selling tank slider for them. Apparently the sharp tank edge seems to protrude in such a way that it will grind through and spark in some crashes.

I cant believe how it took 6 people to roll through there half of them in the grass, before someone got a hand up. I sear everyone else was too busy getting their marshmallows out and stopping on the inside of the turn.

That last guy in the group passing the fire must have been a NESBA rider the way he got his hand up :

If someone would have kicked that black plastic thing off of the track, there was still a good race line through that switchback/chicane. The smoke rolling above your helmet would have just added to the experience.

I'd like to point out that you NEVER, EVER stop on the track unless there are bikes blocking every escape route! The second or third guy stopped and it caused another guy to crash when he had no where to go.

Now that I've got my CR PSA out of the way: Pass the smores!

it could happen to anyone, as Rob said, its the sharp corners to the r6 tank that make one spot grind down fast when it hits the pavement. besides, the 996 tank is pretty narrow compared to most i-4 tanks, you'll be fine.

i slide my F4i upside down on the tank (see avatar) and it was just fine.

My Duc took a hella crash once, and the only damage to the tank was where the dteering dampner kissed the tank. Just checking, Next year I plan on tracking it, and did not know the risks involved.

Those were my thoughts, either way Im almost positive that was not the right type of extinguisher to use on that type of fire. All they did was blow the fuel around and make things worse. What track was that? Or who was running the event? There were a few things about the response that were iffy at best.
