I was quite shocked when I read this earlier this morning on a website.

Then even more shocked when it was treated as a minor headline on Sky News Sport as though deaths in Rallying are common place and it wasn't important.

I have great sympathy for Michael Park's family, Markko Martin and the rest of the team.

The guys do stupidly fast speeds on some really dangerous terrain. It's surprising more drivers/co drivers aren't killed. It's usually spectators.....
McCrae was very lucky a few years back. His Focus was totally FUBAR....

Very sad, his family has my deepest sympathies.

And Spacemunkie, at least show some respect, the poor guy died!
