Both seemed to be low sides where the rider never abandoned the bike. Marq's bike eventually lost traction at the rear and spun out while Simo's got traction and shot him back across the track.
Scary as hell crash at the start of the Red Bull Rookies Cup race. Bikes touched and one veered off hard left into a steel wall at pit out. A few on Titter says rider OK. But wow was that a scary crash.

Happy to hear the kid from the rookies cup crash was not injured worse, that crash made me sick at my stomach....
