SUSSEX Police have reported that a racing driver has died in a tragic crash at Goodwood motor racing circuit.
The incident happened during a time trial event at 2.50pm on Saturday (April 28) when 37-year old Sandra Harrison-Moore, of Blackthorn Grove, Milton Keynes, who was driving a ‘Caterham’ type sports car apparently lost control coming out of the last bend during a race and collided with a tyre wall.

Sussex Road Policing officers were called to the circuit and have been investigating the crash on behalf of HM Coroner for West Sussex but there is no evidence of any other vehicle being involved.
An inquest will be opened in due course.
The event was being held under the auspices of the Motor Sports Association.
Inspector Phil Nicholas said; “This appears to have been a tragic crash during a regular time trial event and our thoughts go to the victim’s family, who were with her when she died.”
