DAn Wheldon was killed in a massive car smash in USA. Racing cars around a track at 200mph is always going to be dangerous, but when a talented driver (or anyone else for that matter) is killed in the pursuit of a sport, it is very sad. The pictures from the Indy 300 race he was in were shown on TV and the crash looked particularly horrendous. I can only hope that this young man did not suffer too much. His fellow drivers were very complimentary to his memory and seemed to mean what they said genuinely.
RIP Dan Wheldon.
