Unhappy WRC Loss @ Rally Wales

Surprised no one has posted about this yet... Did nobody see the rally wales last night??

Not a Subaru team but still a great loss to the sport! Our prayers go out to his family.

This is very sad.

It's posted (now a sticky) in the Motorsport forum.

I read about it yesterday then watched the delayed broadcast on SPEED. It was surreal to watch the in-car footage of Martin/Park as if everything was normal.

I'm sad for Michael's family, but I'm glad that Michael at least was doing what he loved to do.

Good on Loeb for his actions.

We were probably watching the same thing. Speed channel or whatever it's called. channel 607 on directv.

They showed the rally as normal until the 15th stage, at which time they did not show the wreck at all, but instead gave a verbal summary and shared a moment of silence with the rally teams.

ouch. Sucks when life is lost anytime. Especially horrific is that without seeing the accident, it would have to be brutal with the cages and safety equipment they have in there.

Sad time for the sport.

They said it was a side impact on the pass door, directly.

The sticky in motorsports has some onboard footage from a Mitsu as it pulls up to the wreck. Looks like Marco Martin just got sideways into a turn and the passenger door took 100% of the impact. The tree they hit has all the bark stripped off of it from the impact. There is also a gut wrenching photo of Martin kneeling down in disbelief.
Truely a sad day.
