On another discussion board, it was mentioned there had been pressure from a corporate sponsor (i.e. Honda) preventing the race from starting earlier. With the scheduled 3:00pm race start, and sunset at 5:22pm there was less than 2 and a half hours of daylight for the event; poor visibility may have contributed to the crash (in addition to the reduced traction).

"Why did the Tory government agree to hold the vote if they weren't prepared to accept it's possible outcome?"
Good question! I dunno why, but maybe because talk is cheap? Because talking is easier than implimenting?

"What sort of car was it?"
It was a Nissan Caravan, also known as Nissan Homy. It was an older model, equipped with aftermarket aluminum wheels, low profile (racing) tires and heavily-tinted glass.
