    Default Another Sad Day For Motorsport

    Anyone who is watching this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans will by now have heard of Allan Simonsen's passing following a major crash just a few laps into the race. It was his 7th time running at Le Mans and he had a fairly successful racing history in a range of other series. Racing at these top tiers (Le Mans, F1, Indy, etc) has come such a long way in terms of safety and technology that it's easy to forget just how much danger there really is. What do you guys think?

    Requiescat in pace

    While there has been a considerable increase in safety devices, procedures, etc., racers still know that they might not make it back alive from any track session.
    There are only four sports: bullfighting, motor racing, mountaineering, and troll hunting; all the rest are merely games.
