The statement confirms that at the time of the crash, Eisenberg was driving a highly modified Porsche supercar that had already achieved speeds of over 210mph at Pendine sands last year. The event Eisenberg was taking part in was organised by Straightliners, who run high-speed events and record attempts on two and four wheels.

The press release also goes on to confirm that Motorsport UK, the event organisers, and local police have begun a full investigation into the circumstances regarding the incident, adding that more information will be provided once initial findings are available.

Unconfirmed eye-witness reports suggest Eisenberg’s Porsche veered off the runway at high-speed towards the end of the run.
