The lasting legacy of a fallen Indycar rookie

Jeff Krosnoff was plucked out of obscurity to become a respected and highly popular professional in Japan, and then got his big break in Indycar for 1996. But a tragic accident at Toronto 25 years ago cut short a promising career and curtailed his regular team-mate Mauro Martini's passion for racing

Twenty-five years ago Indycar rookie Jeff Krosnoff lost his life in a crash in the Toronto street race, his car spearing into the debris fence after contact with Stefan Johansson.

His death was a terrible blow for the CART community and his little Arciero-Wells Racing team, but the tragedy also echoed around the world thanks to the many years that the Californian had spent racing in Japan.
