Real shame,
makes you think - Burns was one of the fittest hardest training guys in the WRC and he still couldnt fight it off

Terrible news, he was a great talent, I was just thinking the other day how great it would heve been to see him head to head at subaru with solberg like he was meant to happen before he fell ill

RIP Richard

R.I.P Richard Burns. It was exactly this weekend in 1997 that I first saw Richard driving. It was on the Radnor stage of the RAC in the fog where he caught and passed Auriol and set a time no one else could match. To see him that morning put the hairs on the back of my neck standing up. What a true talent and true gentleman the world of rallying has lost!

I met Richard at Punchestown when he was there in the Subaru, seemed ok of a guy. He was bombarded with people lookin signatures and the likes tho so didnt get speakin to him for long. Great pilot, a little bit of a ginger whinger as he was called, but world class as he proved dozens of times over.

R.I.P Burnsie
