I saw that mess, so crazy. I was watching the WTCC race and gave up to go to bed around lap 6. I guess there was a pile-up in that race as well. I do enjoy the stream they provide.

There are more stories on Daniel at the Autosport and Motorsport home pages, for those interested.

I was heartbroken to wake up to that news. Never really heard of him to be honest, but anytime someone dies racing it hits me hard, especially when they are so close in age to me.

Was the motorcycle race run on the same track the big pileup occurred on? That track was ridiculously narrow. Racing a bike in that type of environment is nothing short of suicide. Nothing but Armco to grind your body into.

The very same track. It might be slightly safer than the Isle Of Man TT mountain course, but only slightly.

That was an amazing race. The whole coming back from FCY super fast was strange to say the least.
