Tragic. Even an ex-Gilles Villeneuve car.

Our thoughts go out to all the families today.

Re: Fatality at VARAC today

Man seeing the car after, still sitting on the track was just weird and the whole place was so quiet. I was watching from Moss and I swear it never really looked like he was pushing the car.

my sympathies to his family and friends.

My sincere sympathy goes out to Dino Crescentini's family, friends and crew. He gave great pleasure to so many this weekend as he showed his driving skill in the Wolf Dallara.

Re: Fatality at VARAC today

A tragic loss - Dino Crescentini was a man who loved vintage racing & enjoyed talking to people about his car. We are deeply saddened by his passing. Our sympathies, prayers & thoughts go out to his family & friends.

Our thanks to the rescue crew & EMS people who tried so desperately to save his life.

Vic & Darlene Henderson

Re: Fatality at VARAC today

After having had so much fun recently, Mr Crescentini's passing is a sad reminder of just how final the sport we love can be. May he rest in peace.

Re: Fatality at VARAC today

I was also at 5. It was pretty tough for me....sometimes you just know what has happened, without being told.

Many folks have been sharing their thoughts here: http://thegarageblog.com/garage/trag...al-at-mosport/

My heart goes out to Dino's family.
