Crescentini died this past Sunday in an high speed accident at Mosport during the 29th Vintage Racing Festival. Please note that this is not the same Dino Crescentini that has raced in the Speed World Challenge.

While not confirmed, it appears that the front wing on the Wolf Dallara Can-Am car he was driving came off which caused the front to lose grip. The Can-Am car he was driving at the time was once owned by Walter Wolf (F1 team owner) and also driven by Gilles Villeneuve in the 1977 Can-Am series.

I was not able to make it to this year’s race, below is a photo of Dino and the car from last year’s festival.

RIP.... Dino Crescentini (by Tanner.)
