Five hundred mourners gathered for the funeral of British racing driver Justin Wilson on Thursday.
Wilson died on August 24 after he was hit on the crash helmet by a flying piece of debris at the Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania.
Ex-Formula One driver Mark Webber and retired IndyCar racer Dario Franchitti were among the pallbearers as Wilson's coffin was carried into St James the Great Church in Paulerspury.

A poem written by Julia Wilson, the wife of the Sheffield-born racer, entitled 'Today I washed you away' was read at the service.
Jonathan Palmer, the former F1 driver who took Wilson on as a protege, delivered a 12-minute eulogy.
Wilson will be cremated at a private service before a reception is held at Silverstone later on Thursday.
