I heard the news with great sadness about Richard Hammond yesterday. As a biker and general petrol head, it's sad to see someone so prominent in the public eye, and an obvious enthusuast himself, get hurt so seriously. I wish him well and a safe recovery.
It also got me to thinking about all the other non-famous "petrol heads" that get hurt following their dreams. Spare a thought for their families who may be suffering quietly and out of the spotlight.
