Sad news to report, with an Australian club racing driver killed yesterday in an accident at the Mallala Motorsport Park while competing in the South Australian State Motor Racing Championships.
The competitor, aged in his sixties, was killed instantly when the Honda Civic he was piloting slammed into a tyre wall at the northern end of the circuit, located some 50 kilometres north of the city of Adelaide.
Opened in 1961, the circuit predominantly hosts lower-category racing but it has previously hosted rounds of the Australian Touring Car Championship between 1989-1998.
The identity of the driver has yet to be made public while officials sought contact with his family. A full inquiry will be conducted into the circumstances surrounding his death.
