Great article as always. I sometime wonder why I follow motor racing. It's like riding a tiger, it gives you great highs but sometimes turns round and bites you, but you always believe it will be safe.

Great write-up about some terrible events.

I have always enjoyed the racing and hated the crashes, injuries and deaths, but sadly, they go together. I have met many drivers over the years and never have I asked any of them about the fear of crashing although I know they all think about it. Their strength is being able to race through hell and high water, often on the same day.

I've asked myself many times, why I love motorsport, even after tagic events.
After 45 years, I still marvel at the abilities of team, engineers, designers,who put race cars together. Drivers, who get every ounce of performance out of their cars, when I know that I could only do about 10% of what they do. Mix that together with memories of some of the greatest time I've had sharing that with other similar minded people, and it keeps drawing me back.
