Exclamation Sad End To Rally Great Britain

British rally co-driver Michael Park was killed on Sunday when the car he was in crashed during a special stage of the Rally of Great Britain.

Park, 39, had been the co-pilot in a Peugeot 307 driven by top Estonian Markko Martin when the car veered off the road and hit a tree.

They were competing in the 15th special stage of the rally, the 12th leg of the world championships and were in sixth place at the time of the crash.
The driver Markko Martin, was however uninjured.

Race organisers quickly announced that the remaining two special stages of the race were cancelled and that the rest of the competitors were being called back to the finish at Cardiff.

Nicknamed "Beef", Park had been Martin's co-driver since 2000 but had been competing in the world championships since 1994.
