Salut Gilles!


 acrylic on paper 8x12"

All that emotion!
I was there that fatefull day at Zolder 1982,
Happily taking pictures in the pits of Villeneuve and Pironi.
Gilles went out for one last lap and never came back....
just his wrecked Ferrari on the back of a truck... 
the evening was so eerie and quiet. 
Racing fans just wandering around in disbelief, like zombies...

    Reminder - Register for the Champ Series!

    Friendly reminders:

    Points toward the year end awards are not retro-active.  If you plan on being at Sunday's event and want Sunday's points to count, you MUST register before Sunday.  Register here.

    Same goes for teams.  I must have your team list before Sunday, or Sunday's event will not count for your team.  Team lists can be sent to the e-mail address in my profile.

    You are allowed to register at any point in the season, but who wants to burn a drop on the first event?
