Hey guys, I'm looking for a Dutch racing driver who showed good potential, but was paralyzed in a crash I think in Formula 3 or something. I think the accident was on the Nurburgring, not sure. His car flipped over and the top, the rollbar, broke off and he he hurt his head, meaning he was paralyzed and never raced again. I think he's in a wheelchair now. I think the accident was in the early 1990's.

 

Do you know the name? Thanks heaps.

Sounds like you are thinking of Wouter van Eeuwijk who was paralysed in an F3 accident at the Nürburgring in 1999.
