That's sad. Always nasty to loose some or other driver, spectator or aomeone like that in a race. Tends to heat up discussion about safety in racing and that's never been too good for the more thrilling aspects of the sport (namely... speed)

Too bad really.

Awful, I'm deeply sorry to hear of this loss. If you know Peter (looks like you do) tell him his friends at Ferrari Forum are keeping him and his family in their thoughts and prayers.

Aspecially with rally racing I always think of the consequenses when I go to a race. It is much more dangerous than a track because it has no safety features. Then again, I always go because you can never be free of risc. It is sad to lose a participant of a race, however, autosport is dangerous, and everybody racing, and also visitors should always keep that in mind. This was one of those reminders...

Condoleances to his family and friends
