    Aston Martin Driver Allan Simonsen Killed In Le Mans Crash


    [​IMG]

    Danish racing driver Allan Simonsen was killed at the 81st 24 Hours of Le Mans today, after his No. 95 Aston Martin spun off the track. He was 34, and this was his seventh time participating in the race.

    The Automobile Club de l'Ouest, which organizes the 24 Hours of Le Mans, released the following statement:

    It was originally reported that Simonsen was conscious upon being extricated from the vehicle. It's not immediately clear what caused the Dane from going off the track, though onboard footage from the car behind his appears to show no contact coming from another car. A warning to those who are sensitive or squeamish, this video does not show the actual impact, though it does show the beginning of a crash that would ultimately claim the driver's life:



    It has been 16 years since the last fatality at Le Mans, when Sébastien Enjolras was killed in practice for the 1997 race in his Peugeot.
