Regarding a crash that Jorge reported on earlier here is some information send in by a reader. However, I do not know if they had anything to do with La Carrera Panamericana or not. I do not see their names on the entry list but if anyone knows please let me know.
Saludos Amigos. Regarding the accident related question Angelica asked Jorge. That accident was not a practice run. It was just a tragic traffic accident were the 2 occupants of a Porsche 356 died while driving on the Toluca-Mexico Autopista. They were on the way back to Mexico City when they lost control, hit the guard rail and then got hit by a Derby. The Porsche 356 caught on fire and both occupants died at the moment of impact. The 2 gentelmen who lost their lives were Mr. Nicolas Zapata Cardenas (63) and Mr. Alberto Amezcua Raz (60. The family driving the Derby were not harmed. Actually they tried to rescue the Porsche driver and passenger but it was to late. This occured on October 9th. 2010. and was reported in Reforma.com
