Definately a loss.

The racing community mourns his passing, but also the family has lost more than what we as his fans have. They've lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother a friend.

RIP.

Here's a video tribute or two.

He was at the top of his game when I first fell in love with WRC. Though his time had passed, he was still the face of WRC to most of the world. To think that he AND his son are both lost, just doesn't make sense. The guy drives a car in one of the more dangerous and unpredictable sports for years then loses his life in his own helicopter? He will me missed.

Now if we could just get some WRC coverage in North America so WRC as a whole is not gone!!!
