TRAGIC END FOR RACING COUPLE: Sandra Harrison-Moore (above) was killed during a time trial at the Goodwood circuit in Britain. Harrison-Moore and her husband were regulars on the amateur UK racing ciruit.

A South African-born racing driver has died after a crash at the Goodwood circuit in Britain.

Sandra Harrison-Moore, aged 37 and an occupational therapist, was competing in a time trial at the circuit when she lost control of her classic Caterham L7-2 Roadsport 1800 sports car which hit a tyre wall on the final corner of the historic circuit.

She was helicoptered to Southampton General Hospital with serious head injuries but died there later.


Police 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."

Harrison-Moore and her husband Simon, 48, who lived in Milton-Keynes in central England, were keen members of the Lotus Seven Club and had been competing in racers for more than a year. A source close to the couple said: “Sandra and Simon were a regular fixture on the circuit scene and competed in events around the country together.

“They were a wonderful couple with near-identical cars. The competition between them was constant fun. On Saturday (April 28) they were giving each other full support as usual.”
