IndyCar Drivers drive Race Cars across Golden Gate Bridge to honor fallen driver Justin Wilson


IndyCar stars drove their race cars across the Golden Gate Bridge on Thursday in memory of Justin Wilson, who died of a severe head injury suffered in a race at the weekend. The popular British driver’s death has cast a shadow over this weekend’s season finale at Sonoma Raceway and ignited discussion of ways to make the IndyCar series safer. “Very emotional cross of the bridge in Justin’s car,” tweeted Marco Andretti, who led the motorcade in teammate Wilson’s #25 Andretti Autosport car.

The popular British driver’s death has cast a shadow over this weekend’s season finale at Sonoma Raceway and ignited discussion of ways to make the IndyCar series safer.

“Very emotional cross of the bridge in Justin’s car,” tweeted Marco Andretti, who led the motorcade in teammate Wilson’s #25 Andretti Autosport car.

Two safety vehicles — the same that were on site to render aid last Sunday when Wilson was struck by debris from another racer’s car — flew Justin Wilson flags from the back of their trucks.

Wilson, 37, died on Monday in a Pennsylvania hospital. He had been in a coma since he was hit in the helmet by a large piece of debris in the final laps at Pocono Raceway and crashed into a wall.

“We’ll definitely race with heavy hearts this weekend,” New Zealand’s Scott Dixon, last year’s winner at Sonoma, said Wednesday at an appearance at the California state capitol in Sacramento.
