    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST French courts rule digital licenses must be sellable

    Just a tragic loss, really promising 22 year old driver dies yesterday in a horrific accident on lap 2. He was hit by another car side on after going into the barriers, didn’t stand a chance. Thoughts go out to his family and friends and colleagues. So sad.
