Dan Wheldon 1978 – 2011
Dan Wheldon, reigning champion of the legendary Indy 500, has been killed in a massive 15-car crash at today’s Indycar season finale at Las Vegas.
The Englishman recently devoted his services to SimRaceWay, trying to make their upcoming racing title more realistic by spreading some of his knowledge and experience on the virtual racing community.
Wheldon was a twice time winner of the legendary Indy 500, a two-time IRL Champion and winner of the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona. Great champions are always meant to be remembered for their brightest hours, so here’s the stunning finish of this year’s Indy 500 that Dan won despite driving an underfunded car for Bryan Herta Autosport.
Rest in peace!
