    Just read that, how sad!

    Very sad, things like that make me think about fate.

    Half a second either way and it would have missed him.

    Every little thing that led up to that point could have changed the outcome, how he took the last bend, how he slowed down etc.

    All the incidences John was involved in and survived and yet the sport is so much safer now and he dies at 18.

    yeah it's certainly fate that, very sad :-(

    Didn't realise that the tyre had hit him the first time i watched it. Just thought it was two seperate car crashes.
    Put's things into context. Life is so precious
    My sympathy goes out to his family in this unfortunate time

    Read this yesterday, how tragic and what an awful way to go.

    Fate indeed.
