I went kart racing today - I'm really bummed, one of my friends was killed in a racing accident. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif

I know it's not Z06 related...but I just had to get that off my chest.

Very sorry to hear that. Hang in there!
Thanks for the kind words.

It was a karting accident. The best any of us can piece together is that the throttle stuck and he drove down an escape road at the end of a long straightaway, hit a wooden barrier and knocked himself unconscious, then went full throttle for 1/2 block and wedged under a Suburban at over 65 mph. And this was at a well organized racing event - just goes to show you never know when and how it's going to happen, but when it's your time it's your time.

I will be attending the funeral tomorrow... /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif

Send our thoughts and prayers to his family, and you.

Sorry to hear about your friend. Most of my friends are racing guys and it would be hard to loose one.

I scanned in the bio of my friend. It's rather touching. I know you didn't know him, but if you were curious:

bio page 1
bio page 2
Gods Speed

I am so saddened by the loss of your friend. I can tell by reading the bio that the entire world lost a friend, a very good person, a real man. I never had the pleasure of knowing him, but can tell he was genuine.

I'm sorry buddy! Be strong, be tough, and God Bless!


Thanks for posting the Bios!! It's truely sad when we lose close friends. God bless him and his family.
