Auto racing is one of the most popular sports in the world, but it is also one of the most dangerous. From the moment a driver climbs into the cockpit, they are at risk. As history has continually demonstrated, professional race car drivers face the threat of danger with every pass and turn. Sadly, some of racing’s greatest catastrophes have not just involved those behind the wheel, but also innocent spectators and onlookers. This Demo Day took a closer look at some of racing’s greatest tragedies, and shared the stories of the advocates, both on and off the track who fought for a safer competitive environment.
