    That is a very big shock for me!!

    I knew he was ill ages ago and had to stop rallying but never realised that he was going to die from it!!

    R.I.P.

    Shock right enough - I heard on the radio on the way to work this morning. Like others I had no idea he was this ill.

    Top bloke - seemed down to earth and of course a bloody great driver.

    It just goes to show nobody knows what's around the corner.......

    I remember him suddenly having to stop driving because of it, but I thought it was treatable and he'd eventually return. Had no idea it was life threatening.

    Great loss.
