This was on the MGVR Yahoo list:


I have sad news to report from the Vintage Fall Festival at Road America 
this past weekend. We have had another fatality in the vintage racing 
community. We lost driver Surjit Hermon on Friday afternoon in an 
incident near turn 12 (under the now non existent Billy Mitchell 
bridge). Surjit lost control of his Eastlake 11, skidded right-left- 
right and impacted a Mini Cooper which was well off course and in the 
process of being hooked up for a flat tow. The safety workers had to run 
for their lives when they looked up from trying to find a attachment 
point for the flat tow and saw a skidding car coming at them.
My second weekend as a Driver Committee Chairman - second fatality!
Watch your flags, remember the 80% rule, and if you were contemplating a 
Hans device let this be a warning.
