Richard Burns

Former World Rally Champion Richard Burns, died, age 34, on Friday night. He'd been battling a brain tumour for the past two years.

The first ever British world champion he will be sadly missed by all in the motorsport community.

The Guardian online has an obitury from The Observer here.

Anyone wishing to pay tribute to Richard can do so on the memorials page of his website:

His family are asking not for flowers, but instead for donations to be made to Cancer Research.

The car picture is from the Craven Motor Club website; Craven is where he started his motorsport career.

The portrait picture is from the BBC's Sports Review of the Year Page, 2001 - the year he won his world championship.
