Richard Burns: 1971 – 2005

Yesterday I heard that Richard Burns, WRC 2001 champion, has died as a result of a brain tumor. I still remember how – in 2003 – Richard Burns passed out during a rally and a brain tumor was the diagnosis. Shocking news as he was only 32 years old at the time. Still, I sort of forgot about all of this until yesterday with this announcement. Rest in peace Richard, and maybe I’ll do a quick run in your Subaru WRC on my PS2 in your honour.
