A very sad day.
Rip Sean, and sincere condolences to your dad and family.
It sounds like you knew nothing of the crash which is a great thing. I hope the driver is able to recover too.

Very sad and tragic. But what happened to the 20 year old he was supervising or instructing?

Driver transferred to hospital in a critical but stable condition, but with horrific burns apparently. Crashed whilst his parents were watching from the grandstand. Not nice at all.

It appears this was a 'driving experience' sort of thing, so it could be that the passenger may well not have been wearing full fireproof gear, and the car may not have been as fully protected as a race car.

As he was leading the championship with one double header round to go, the other teams should not take part so he wins the championship posthumously.
