Driver killed at Le Mans

The French racing driver Sebastian Enjolras was killed in a crash in yesterday's pre-qualifying for June's Le Mans 24 Hours race, the first driver fatality in the event since the Austrian Jo Gartner died in 1986. Enjolras lost control of his Peugeot as it accelerated out of a corner, and the car left the track and burst into flames.
