Interesting but morbid website

Postby admin » Tue Mar 31, 2015 3:17 pm

Well, we all know that we have a limited time here on earth and some don't make it to old age. This website is a compliation of people who have paid the ultimate price in the pursuit of speed. Some famous, most not so famous. It's an interesting read with a lot of names you may recognize.

Interesting site Mr. Admin Sir,,,

Pat Coyle (Coyle (1975) was a racing acquaintance, very nice guy.
I had a little chat with Pat just before his last lap, I asked how it was going? He said "It looks pretty good for someone else" and laughed. Those were his last last words on this planet.
I sat in the water box in my last digger and watched him get killed!
I was the next car down the strip which was a very odd feeling lap to say the least.
It was not his best day nor mine.

Dog...
Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints!

Looking at this site I see people who I knew, knew of and read about. Interesting to see the extra little bit of information on each of them. In a funny way, it's nice that they are somehow memorialized.

Evpatoria test track, Crimea. Probably the only drag strip in Russia? No wonder Putin wants control. I would do the same. ;)

I agree, it's morbid, but also kinda nice in a weird way. They aren't forgotten.
