Just read the reports this lunchtimes- in a coma following an accident in Indycar yesterday. Seems was hit by a piece of debris.

Sounds very serious. Lets hope for some good news. :pray)

Very sad news. I have never really followed Indy that closely so my abiding memories of him are still from F3000. Especially the year he won the championship after some great battles with his team-mate Tomas Enge and Webbo Webber. Though Justin was just too consistently good for both them - as I recall he won the title by some margin in the end.

Great bloke who it semed to me never really got the chance he deserved either side of the pond - but clearly loved racing despite that.
