When Reaper came to circuit

It's hard to write something like, but it's information, it has to spread away and commented. If you are a regular motorsport spectator, you've noticed about the number of race drivers that died this year on track, being on four wheels or in two wheels.

If we think about how was motorsports 50, 60 years ago, we can get to a conclusion that racing today is miles away safer than in the time that F1 started. Today we HANS system, SAFER barriers, ABS brakes, rollcages and improved sport and technical rules to make motorsport stay as safer as possible, because speeds are increasing in the same rhythm, maybe a little ahead of safety measures.

This factors, allied with the will of the driver to always get the best of its machine is what makes racing so exciting, as well as dangerous. And this difference may cost driver's lifes sometimes.

There's so many cases in 2013, but it's better to point the most relevant ones, because it may take so many lines to talk about every case.

In 2013, we had in special the cases of Allan Simonsen, the Danish Aston Martin driver, who died at a crash at Tertre Rouge turn, right in the start of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Sean Edwards, the British driver that won the 24 Hours of Nürburgring and was leading the Porsche Supercup until the moment of his death, when he was the passenger in a private session in Australia, and Wolf Silvester, successful VLN driver that died of health problems whie driving in the VLN 3rd round.

In the motorcycles, we have the example of Kurt Caselli, that died in the Baja 1000 race, due to head injury, and Andrea Antonelli, at the Supersport Moscow round, when he was hit by Lorenzo Zanetti in the 1st lap of the race.

Motorsport may be dangerous, but it can be a delightful experience. These drivers enjoyed the racing careers to the maximum, and will be remembered by their goals.
