Cooper fighting for life

Post by Admin_Holden on Sat Feb 23, 2008 12:17 pm

As was reported in today's coverage a massive accident has hampered the Clipsal 500. In today's Fujitsu Series race Ashley Cooper hit the wall VERY hard at turn 8 and is now fighting for life in a serious condition.

Thanks to Goldfinch Designs I may now explain the incident...

1: Cooper touches Armco on the inside here...


2: Cooper then hits the wall at turn 8 here...


3: Cooper flies in the air, and loses his front spoiler...


4: Cooper then narroly misses an AU Falcon and hits the other side of the wall backwards...

*Image removed as it may have been found offensive by some viewers...* And the image was not mocking Ashley Cooper by any relation...

Shame.
I'd hate to have another V8 driver lose the battle.
I know I shouldn't laugh, but when you did the splitter part, I gave a small chuckle. Just at the way you did it....

I do admit, it did look a little gay... but in a way this reminds me of Mark Porter. He had young children and a partner. He has suffered internal injuries and also swelling of the brain. From V8 SuperChat we wish you the best in your recovery...

From,
Michael, Ben and the V8 SuperChat boys/girls. Sad Crying or Very sad

Clipsal 500 mared by latest V8 supercar death...

Fujitsu V8 Supercar Series driver Ashley Cooper passed away this afternoon, at 1.00pm Adelaide time.

27 year old Cooper failed to regain consciousness, and succumbed to brain injuries after a high speed racing accident at the Clipsal 500 meeting in Adelaide on Saturday morning.

At his bedside were partner, Casey; parents Alan and Maree, and siblings Rebecca, Rachel and Aaron. Ashley and Casey’s two young children, Ella, 5, and Bailey, 3, are being cared for at home in Ulladulla with family.

Ashley’s father, Alan Cooper, has praised everybody involved in caring for Ashley since the accident; including trackside officials, Royal Adelaide Hospital staff and V8 Supercars Australia officials.

Alan also acknowledged the amazing support the family and team members have received from both the motorsport community, and the general public.

This is obviously a very difficult time for all those involved, and we would ask that members of the media respect the privacy of the family and do not contact them at this time.

Funeral details will be advised when they become available.

Michael Carscadden

Media Officer, Ashley Cooper Motorsport

Cooper's family have made a big decision. They are donating Ashley's orans to others. And thanks to that he has already saved 7 lives. Wow. Definently condolences to Ashley's family but their decision has helped others.
