Lars-Erik Torph Career Summary

Died 23rd January 1989 while spectating on the Monte Carlo - actually doing ice notes for Frederik Skoghag. It was one of the freakiest accidents in motorsport history. You could not say Torph was standing unsafe as he had actually finished watching that stage going back to ice note duties and was walking away from the stage when Alessandro Fiorio completely misjudged a corner and went off way further down the embankment than could be expected.
