Sam Fenech RIP
« on: January 07, 2023, 09:40:15 PM »
Not going to share the video link... it is pretty brutal.

Car got sideways and crossed the track in the air hitting the top of the armco, then over it, hitting a camera tower (camera guy in hospital with 'light injuries') and then took out a pole... car is demolished and he sadly passed in the incident.

Condolences to his family and hopefully the camera person makes a full recovery.

Sam will be sorely missed!


For forumites not familiar with Drag racing, this car was featured in the Chevrolet Racing display at Bathurst, with the Gen 3 Camaro alongside.
