I was 9/10 when I met Dan. I used to go and watch my cousin compete in karting and it was on a weekend away when I met Dan. Funnily enough it was messing around with a football, playing 5-aside with a few of the drivers. Although Dan wasnt the best of footballers everyone looked up to him and knew who he was and from an early age knew he would go far in the world of motorsport.
Such a shame. Thoughts with his friends and family,
