Killed during an Indycar race at Las Vegas. all our thoughts to his wife and kids
My thoughts to his family, a terrible tragedy.
Must admit though, i was shocked to see how the Indy cars faired in the accident, cars breaking in half and cars bursting into flames. This sort of sight was common place in F1 20 or more years ago, but advances in the cars design means it's been many years since we have seen an F1 car come apart or suffer serious fires due to fuel tanks rupturing. I guess the extra weight of an Indy car and the high speeds involved will always make them more vulnerable in such an accident like this one.
