    Default RIP young man...

    The racing community lost a very talented and amazing young racer yesterday. Toriano Wilson of Bermuda was racing in the RedBull Rookies Cup here in the us at VIR and was involved in a horrific crash. This hits very close to home for us as Little Mario will be eligible for the RBRC in 2009.

    Here's a link to one of the stories...

    Thanks for posting this Mario. This story brought chills up and down my spine. It's rare to have fatalities in our sport and now we've seen two in the past month!

    God Speed fallen brothers!

    Terrible to hear! The RBRC is the best thing to happen to RR here in the US in a long time and now one of the kids is gone.

    Lets be sure and remember his parents and family in prayer!

    It's a very odd feeling going through photo archives of things I have never posted publically and find pictures of people in a situation like this. I don't like doing it as it is my 3rd time. RIP Toriano

    i was reading road racer x at work and it looks like this is the 4th kid to be killed doing this sport younger than 15 years. They were talking about how it is not like dirt bike riding due to the speeds they go. But I guess every sport has its dangers. It was ironic that it was in this months issue as this just happened. It had a story about the red bull cup. Good read but also pointed out the dangers.

    I think I've been a little in avoidance mode myself. So tragic. I can't even imagine losing a child. Prayers to his family and friends. He is safe in the Lord's hands. I imagine he's racing among the stars with the clouds to catch him. God Bless young man.
