Veteran state-level competitor Peter Hall has succumbed to injuries sustained in a crash at the weekend’s Victorian State Championships at Phillip Island.

The South Australian’s Datsun 240Z collided with the rear of Ted Huglin’s stalled Lamborghini Gallardo at the start of a sportscar race on Sunday.

Following the crash, Hall was taken to the Phillip Island hostpital before being flown to Melbourne’s Alfred Hospital in a critical condition.

A CAMS statement on Wednesday afternoon described Hall’s death as “a massive loss for the sportâ€.

Peter and his wife Margaret were both honoured with Order of Australia Medals earlier this year for their services to motorsport.

Hall was a former chairman of CAMS’ South Australian State Council and had been an active competitor since the 1970s.

Standing start caused this, Lambo stalled as usual, Peter must have been unsighted and bang, s**t happened. Rolling starts are pretty well universal, except where this happened. Disgraceful. A real Datsun racer and motorsport supporter taken , it should never have happened.
