Mark Woodley's Fatal Crash
From Motorsport Memorial: _____________________________________________ Woodley was killed in a top-end crash when his "Hellbender" jet dragster took a hard left into the crash barrier - from the right lane, what obliged his opponent Colin fallows to take evasive action -, in a very similar way to the accident that killed Allan Herridge three years earlier. This turned out to be the last side-by-side jet car race in Britain: the similarities between Herridge's and Woodley' accidents was an important factor in the MSA to ban side-by-side drag racing of jet-engined cars. Since then, jet dragster racing in the United Kingdom are solo events.
