Le Mans is a tough race, no one ever disputes that. What people sometimes do forget, though, is that it can be a deadly race. That was proved today with the death of Allan Simonsen, though the race has not been halted. Some may view that as insensitive, however the race has never been stopped, going back to 1923.
Danish racing driver Allan Simonsen was killed at the 81st 24 Hours of Le Mans today, after his No. 95 Aston Martin spun off the track. He was 34, and this was his seventh time participating in the race.
