racerxonlineTragic news out of Baja: multi-time champion and off-road legend Kurt Caselli died in a horrific crash yesterday. Godspeed, Kurt.
2 separate sources (that I'm aware of) on the scene of Kirt's accident stated that no man made booby traps were found. While this doesn't change the tragic outcome of Kirt's accident, at least it was the result of the risks that Kirt himself was willing to accept as part of the challenge that is BAJA and not a malicious act. RIP Kirt!
