South Point Hotel and Casino
Las Vegas, Nevada
January 18, 2020
Racing Goes Safer joined the SCCA Saturday, January 18th, 2020 for a special presentation at the SCCA National Convention in Las Vegas. "It Will Never Happen to Me" was presented by Philippe DeLespinay of the Stand 21 Racing Goes Safer Foundation, and Hong Zhang of the SNELL Memorial Foundation.
"A faulty injector caused fuel leakage and a catastrophic explosion within tenths of second of the car reaching over 150 MPH, and his efforts to slow down and exit the car. Lyle was literally on fire and unfortunately, made the main error of drivers engulfed in on-board fire, taking a deep breath after his equipment failed. His helmet’s visor melted almost instantly, allowing flames and gases to reach his lungs. His extremities also suffered major burns. Lyle survived, but with his life forever altered."

Lifetime Achievement Award Presentation
Dr. Stephen Olvey was presented the award by the Foundation President, Yves Morizot, and its Director, Don Taylor. This award is given to a person who has embodied the philosophy of safety first, and dedicated their life to improving safety in the motorsport industry.
The Racing Goes Safer Foundation hosts several free seminars each year for racers in all forms of motorsport.
These seminars are paid for in large part, by Yves Morizot, founder and President of Stand 21 Racewear. The education and mission of the foundation wouldn't be possible if it weren't for the contributions from racers and people like you who are just as passionate about increasing motorsport safety for all...
