This is a tragedy.really,racing belongs in a controlled environment, such as a racetrack. I had a cousin in October of 1971 who was killed in ford torino in flat rock mi. Near detroit. He hit train trestle post. Speed limit was around 30. It was straight road.my lady cousin says cops were playing chicken. Hard to believe. They figured 100 mph+. He was shown in casket but he had made up face. It should have been closed casket.he was 21 and just leaving u.s. navy.
These Porsches r race cars. When racing on public streets,many risks r involved.

A long trail of power steering fluid was found leading up to the crash site.

How often do fluid hoses fail on half million dollar cars?

Of COURSE speed was a factor. 35mph doesn't demolish a car that way.

I smell murder.

An 8 year old low milage car with factory parts including rubber hoses and seals which can dry out from age and lack of use. My guess is that the power steering was under pressure which sprayed fluid all over which how the car became engulfed so quickly.

TMZ found a memo warning to dealers the dangers of driving the Porsche. They said that car is darn close to being a real race car-ment for a track. The memo said even a flat beer can effect steering.

Still think they lost a seal or hose.
never heard of the bum

Thats aload of crap. A Porsche sitting with dry hoses? come on thats far fetched . People will come up with the most ridiculous BS. It came down to speed its that simple. Stupid theory Iam sorry but it is. Next. Even if it was leaking, who cares now anyway, the more men lost their lives for petes sake. Sheesh the nerve.

Another idiot with a stupid theory. The driver murdered the 2 of them period. Do you really need to speed? Again, even if it was leaking , it still gives no reason to speed. You really think the leak caused them to smash into a tree? Come on use your brains son.

All you fools have stupid theories . None of you can use your brains to factor speed over anything caused their death. Next you will say the tires blew. Bunch of dummies

PS fluid doesn't burn.

The stock hoses on that car are racing synthetics, not rubber.

Ever have your steering lock up?

I AM using my brains, youngster. That's why I suspect murder. I think Paul was collateral damage. The owner of the vehicle was the target.

If u look up this car specs and characteristics,it really wasn't a street car it should have been used extremely carefullya very difficult car to drive, even for race drivers.,In 1984 there was mustang SVo. This car was really only a high speed car.not really for city.i heard half were sent to Deutschland fer autobahn.this driver made a fatal error.

There is NOTHING that the driver could do that accounts for the long trail of power steering fluid that leads up to the crash. The power steering fluid lines HAD to have been tampered with.

That's murder.

Means.

Opportunity.

All the cops have to discover is probable motive.

I actually saw clips from his movies for first time. Very exhilarating.
Interesting movies. What a loss! I'm sure god has gained an angel. His memory will live everlasting.
