Married with Kids.......

You can only imagine the loss they have suffered.

Tragic accident.

The rules will change once again to avoid this happening again, its not worth a life for a competative sport. I feel for the driver as he will be punishing himself as the vehicle is his responsability as was the co-driver.

its awful!

imagine how the driver feels

but the side of the car is always a weak point

even with a roll cage

but its the dangers of the sport i suppose

condolences to his family!

its a sad day for the sport!

Holy shit, not seen those pictures, that looks horrific. These cars are virtually bombproof but if you hit a tree like that its always going to hurt.

Definately a sad and tragic day in motorsport and after chatting to both Marco and Michael in Cyprus he will be missed by everyone linked with and who follows motorsport.

Feelings have got to go out to his family and freinds and also Marco and his family. Cant begin to imagine how he must be feeling right now, he is lucky to get out of it un injured.
