Who was the man in chains, flipping a tire at the Legislature on Canada Day?

~Victoria Buzz~ Terrance Joseph Kosikar is 43-years-old and lives in the beautiful back-country mountains of British Columbia, Canada.

After crashing out of the exit of corner 16, Nodar had left the track clocking over 153 kph, hitting a solid steel post, with his body landing 20 feet away from First Responder Terrance Joseph Kosikar.

He was pronounced dead and the games went on as if nothing had happened.
