Default Cambridge Accident

I just heard from Jim Miller, owner and driver of Tomcat. He asked me to thank all of the race team members for all of your help.

He is resting and out of danger.

All I could find out about Mark House is that he is in satisfactory condition. I was not able to speak with him.

Jim is VERY grateful for everyone's help and the only thing he asked is for me the send his thanks.

Jim and Mark are surely welcome. There were a lot of people involved in many different asspects in getting these gents to the helicopters. The accident was pretty violent, the responders did a great job in getting these guys out of harms way!

Get well guys, we hope to see you back racing in no time at all!!

I have known Mark and Jim for several years. It was on the Potomac River Poker Run, Washington DC in 2002 when we all met. Godspeed to their respective recoveries.

Was it a blowover? Spin? Flip?

They rolled it in turn 3. It was not a pretty sight from where I was.

They spunout and were ejected. The boat stayed upright. It was my understanding that they were all relatively OK....but I bet that they are sore this morning.
