We are deeply saddened to hear of the death of Simon Andrews, our condolences and deepest sympathy goes out to all of his family and friends and those affected by this tragic news. He will be greatly missed by all staff and those he touched here at St. George's Park, where he underwent a course of rehabilitation before returning to racing following his crash at Le Mans in 2011.

Simon was fully committed to his recovery programme, showing great enthusiasm and determination to recover from his injuries and get back to racing.  He was a great character and a true inspiration to everyone he met with his amazing zest for life and sheer tenacity to succeed, he was a pleasure to work with and a true champion.
