What's that at the end. Allowed on the track in suitably adapted vehicles?

I wonder if Chris Redman told him to uprate his suspension rather than buy a roll cage

Rollcage probably wouldn't have helped him but I'm notgoing into that.

According to peoples posts on TS that seems to be the case, can't say for sure though. The no helmet thing is fucking rediculous, that should be mandatory. Even on the 1/4 mile they should enforce it.

Sad thing is, it's probably entirely avoidable if that is true.

Nevertheless, this isn't the place for debate. RIP.

I wasn't a fan of Crail when I was there, nothing was thought out and the place didn't look well maintained.

He most definately didnt go through the windscreen.

I had to go and collect the car for the police, knew it was serious but didn't realise he had died.

An older 172, really nice looking car, had obviously had a bit of time and money put into it. Ive got photos of it but obviously not wanting to post them online, they only get taken for me to justify my time on the job etc.

Not sure I agree with that thread on TS considering the crail staff were still there hours after and waiting with the police for us to collect the car.

Never been a fan of there no helmet rule etc but they were definately not hiding away.
