Killed during a tracks session at California Speedway. Be Careful guys, this was truely an accident. Flag-man at the end of pits waved a Ferrari 360CS onto the track, where he cut off the CGT. Ben tried to avoid the Ferrari as he was traveling over 165mph.


He and his passenger have passed. Ben leaves his wife and young son.

I can't believe in a situation like this you are talking about whose fault it is. It doesn't matter, somebody died...my prayers are with them and their families.

Im sorry you took it wrong, I am just stating what I think and was partly a cause of the accident. The first word I wrote was "terrible".

Terrrible. On track days I attend, the organizers take getting on the track very seriously. They tell you to stay on the right all the way through the first corner. I now know why!

Both men were wearing helmets and safety belts but the car was doing more than 100 mph when it crashed, authorities said.

speaking about safety in a car...
all that stuff, plus the airbags.. terrible.. no matter what kind of safety features your car has, its still a piece of metal, that you trust your life to..
My condolences to all those who knew them.

My feelings also go out to Corey Rudl's family.
If don't know if anyone knows but Corey was an Internet marketing genius.

A great guy who helped many people become wealthy like himself.

Live each day to the fullest like there is no tomorrow.

RIP Corey and Ben.

I have to say that i agree 100% with the post gustav and the partial shed of blame on the track bloke as it gives an insight as to tell people that even on a professionally organised track day you still have to have your witts about you and not take for granted someone flagging you to pass onto the track.

As above by others, my thoughts are with the family, how awefull :crying2:
