DAN WHELDON

1978 - 2011

2005 IRL IndyCar Series Champion

2005 and 2011 Indy 500 Champion


Legends of Indy

Dear Stephen,

As a fellow Brit and follower of his career, I was shocked and saddened to hear about Dan Wheldon on Sunday. It was a stark reminder of the risks in motor racing, where speeds can reach 250 mph.

To honor this legend in the making, here are some images from our May newsletter about the centenary Indy 500 -- which Dan then won -- and past legends of Indy.

This year's victory made a total of 6 at the 'Brickyard' by Dan and 3 other great British drivers: Jimmy Clark (1965), Graham Hill (1966), and Dario Franchitti (2007, 2010.)

A customer from Florida wrote:

"In this area - especially St. Petersburg - he was very much appreciated, a local hero, and loved living here. He would stroll the streets with his family and chat with anyone who cared to chat with him. He was a very sincere, polite, and clean individual."

Regards,
