Mark Lovell
FameRank: 4

"Mark Lovell" was a United Kingdom/British rally driver. He won the 1986 British Rally Championship in a Ford RS200 Group B, the 1987 and 1988 Irish Tarmac Rally Championship, the 1988 International Dutch Rally Drivers' Championship and the 2001 SCCA ProRally Drivers' Championship in the United States. He also won the 2003 Pikes Peak International Hillclimb only two weeks before his death.

When the Subaru Impreza WRX and the Mitsubishi Evolution were introduced in 2002 and 2003 to the United States, both cars created more interest in the sport of Rallying. Subaru and subsequently Mitsubishi entered the US Pro Rally championship with factory teams; Mark Lovell was the lead driver for the Subaru / Prodrive team, with Americans Karl Scheible (2002) and Ramana Lagemann (2003) as teammates.

Mark and his co-driver Roger Freeman (co-driver)/Roger Freeman were both killed in July 2003 during the Oregon Trail Rally when their Works ProRally Subaru Impreza WRX left the road and struck a tree at high speed shortly after the start of the first stage.

A memorial page for both Mark and Roger has been set up, which includes many photographs of the team and events at both the Pikes Peak and Oregon Trail Pro Rallies.

It depends on how fast you are going when you get hit and what your injury history is. It's very difficult to predict who's going to have a concussion. It could look like it's not that bad of a hit, but it comes down to a lot of factors that we don't even know about at this time.

The tricky part is that concussion signs and symptoms are not always straightforward and the effects and severity of injury and safe return-to-play can be difficult to determine.

Results of this study support previously published findings that indicate that NFL athletes recover quickly. We evaluated the athletes by using formal tests of reaction time, concentration and memory.
