In Competition: A decade without the last british champion of the WRC rally: Richard Burns

Have already spent 10 years of that on a cold November morning we enteráramos of the death of World Rally Champion for 2001. Richard Burns was in silence, without giving the talk, as it had been in regards to sports, a pilot always with a smile in the mouth, friendly and very professional. A brain tumor led to the last british able to lift the wound intercontinental.

The redhead Reading retired giving war in the World. Came to the Rally Catalunya 2003 with a chance to take the WRC more open in the last two decades, and only his accident at the wheel of his Peugeot 206 WRC in the Spanish appointment him away from able to fight him to Wales, where we had always found very comfortable. Who knows, maybe come up with options and 100% health could have taken her former partner of Subaru, Petter Solberg, his only championship title. There was always the hope to see you again at the wheel of a World Rally Car.

Two years after being detected, his tumor after a few tests carried out after fainting while driving, Burns was in silence, and despite having fought until the last minute against this damn disease that you don’t understands to reasons. left Us to remember their ten victories in the World Rally championship (all of them with Subaru, except two, with Mitsubishi), his friendship with the also missing Colin McRae (with which surely follows ‘picándose’ wherever they are) and his eternal smile. Rest in peace Richard.
