Yeah, that's the same. In the same article there was mention of another fatality that weekend. Richard Solomas (navigator), 26, killed, and driver Gerard Delaup injured, somewhere in the Provence region of France. Non-specified rallye accident. I've submitted the case, even though there's not much info.

Should get those sorted, I've seen so many.

Delaup/Solomas accident happened at Rallye Petrole-Provance and I've submitted that case some months ago. By the way, is date of this accident mentioned in article?

Lost a good friend at Blackhawk in the 80's whose head was above the roll bar and crashed landed on on his head. Very sad!
Maybe worth some research. No matching fatalities at mm.org:

Driver Ted Johnson died on 27 May 1985, one day after accident during sportscar race at Blackhawk Farms; he touched wheels with another driver, flipped over and was pinned under car. Cause of death was attributed to neck injuries.

I'll try to find more, but I think that Tiede mentioned this accident.

Speaking of Blackhawk Farm Raceway, there's another driver missing from MM.org. Ron Valine, former US Army colonel, was injured in freak accident during qualifying for FF race on 2 May 2009 when he was hit in the head by wild turkey and died three years and one day later (3 May 2012).
