Yesterday, the #83 GT4 Aston Martin Vantage was involved in a fatal incident at the Bergwerk section of the Nürburgring circuit. The driver of the car, 43 year old Leo Löwenstein was unable to escape the fiery wreckage, later dying as a result of smoke inhalation. The incident will no doubt be the subject of many enquiries during the weeks to come.
This occurrence serves as a chilling reminder to all involved that motorsport remains an extremely dangerous, and potentially fatal sport. Our thoughts are with Leo’s family and friends during this difficult time.
