Title: Sad News from Brands Hatch
Post by: PVDA on August 01, 2021, 10:13:48 AM
As I went to bed last night word filtered through of a serious crash involving an early 90's Touring Car at Brands Hatch, as the event was being live streamed to YouTube someone had captured and posted the lead up which confirmed reports the crash involved the car heading towards a marshals post.

Sadly I woke up this morning to the news that one of the UK Orange Army of volunteer marshals has died as a result of injuries, the condition of the others has not been reported and the driver involved is reported to have suffered a broken leg.

This sport that we enjoy can sometimes bite hard and my thought are with my Orange Army colleagues in the UK as well as the drivers involved.
