I still can't believe this has happened, one of the most laid back gents ever stolen too soon, but never forgotten.

I be there Wednesday.

Raf is the only person I have known that attended a track day on one weekend. Then rocks up to Rally Day the following weekend. Throws some water over the wheels. Leaves all the rubber and tar on the paintwork. Then walks off with the trophy for the Best E10 on the stand.

Class act. Sorely missed.

RIP and I'll be at Brands to pay my respects
One morning I shot an elephant in my pyjamas. How he got into my pyjamas I'll never know
I never forget a face, but in your case I'll be glad to make an exception

He was a real gent, met him a couple of times.

40 years old, heart attack. Go figure.

So sad to hear this, I never met him, but read much of his input. Rest in Peace. He will be missed.

Only met him once, can't believe something like that could happen to someone that age. Absolutely terrible news, RIP.
