This is truely awful news. I followed this man's career since 1995, what a shocking loss. And his 5 year old son too, how sad a weekend this is.

He will be remembered as a Rallying Legend. And so soon after Richard Burns and Bertie Fisher passed away too.

My thoughts are with his wife and child he has left behind :(
