    A very tragic accident at Brands Hatch yesterday. A loose wheel from the car of Jack Clarke struck Surtees' helmet. He was stabilised at the track but died later in hospital.

    It's always sad to see someone die in motorsport, but at least it was doing the one thing he enjoyed the most.

    It just goes to show that no matter how safe the cars are made, motorsport is still dangerous, and there can always be a freak accident.

    That's just too early for someone to die. But sometimes, accidents happen.

    Saw the video of the crash on YouTube yesterday when news of it started coming out from drivers in another race series at Brands. Very, very unlucky and clearly nothing he could do about it. My thoughts are with his family.
    :(
