YouTube #7

I was at Brands Hatch on Sunday when this race took place, and was in the pits when it actually happened, and was therefore quite close to see the aftermath that included the doors being cut off, Rod Birley extracted on stretcher and what was left of the car being collected up. I was quite surprised so see so many people trying to photograph him at a point that no one even knew if he was conscious or how seriously injured he was. I was also surprised to see people letting their young children watch what was quite an unpleasant scene, though perhaps they were just shocked to see it so up close. Rod is something of a legend at Brands, with hundreds of race wins to his name in that Escort Cosworth, and hopefully we’ll see him back on track soon.
