RIP

What a terrible crash. I've never heard of Dan Wheldon until yesterday. It's a sad day in the racing world.

Front page on the BBC, Daily Mail (top story), and Grauniad websites. Not checked the others, but it seems this is being well covered.

yes, it is now, they just seem to have been a little slow on the uptake, this morning on the bbc tv news it barely got a mention and was trumped by students occupying the stairs at st.pauls

Re: Dan Wheldon died yesterday

It was on the BBC news at one am (our time), a shocking bit of footage.
The wicked thought crossed my mind that he was due to collect $5 million for charity if he'd won that race and 'someone' had tinkered with the car to prevent him finishing; which clearly went horribly wrong.

the crash happened in front of him, he was one of the last to arrive and got caught up in it, tbh its a very daft thing to think and even dafter to post it.
