Despite all the safety precautions installed in modern cars and tracks today, tragedies still happen. Sadly, after just ten minutes of the 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours, Allan Simonsen slid over the curbs in his Aston Martin Vantage GTE and threw himself into the guardrail at the exit of Tertre Rouge - and later died of his internal injuries. This is how the career of the 34-year-old Danish racing driver ended, which began in karting and led him to sports cars via formula cars in 1999 in 2002, when he drove a Ferrari in the British GT Championship. A successful decade of racing in Australia followed. He was no stranger to Le Mans, having his first race in a Porsche 997 GT3-RSR in 2007 and the following year in a Lola B05/40 Mazda in the LMP-2 class. The fateful 2013 race was his seventh race at La Sarthe, his favorite race on his favorite track.
