Crash Ollie Millroy

By motorsportpictures  
Hi all, here is the Crash sequence I got at the British grand Prix at Silverstone last weekend, this is of Ollie Millroy, who had tangled with another Formula BMW car, and then, got into the air and rolled through the gravel.

Neith Drivers were hurt, I had sent this to Autosport Magazing, they said they didnt use it this week, becasue they would use it in their end of year special, photo's of the year page !!!

Congratulations Scott on your success! This is a superb series and I can see why they should be in end of year specials. When you're rich and famous I can always say I talked to you on epz and you were the first person to comment on my very first image , how's that for a brush with the soon to be famous ?
