Simraceway Pro Driver Dario Franchitti Retires from RacingBy Jonathan Haswell In Feature Articles, Racing News
Four-time IndyCar champion and triple winner of the Indianapolis 500, Dario Franchitti announced yesterday that he would be retiring from professional motorsport due to medical concerns resulting from his crash in Houston. As someone we’ve worked with closely over the last few years, that news provokes a range of emotions.
As racing fans, we share in the sadness that will be felt across the entire sport–we took immense pleasure from his continued successes and even had the privilege of sharing in some of his biggest victories.

However, having also been lucky enough to get to know the man behind the legend, we’re thankful that Dario is taking a route that will keep him out of harm’s way in the future.
We will be joining in with what is sure to be an orchestra of plaudits in due course but, for now, we just want to thank Dario for everything he’s done for the sport we love!
