Guess what. Hours after Colin's crash, prodrive boss David Richards who was responsible for the acquisition of Aston Martin from Ford crash landed his helicopter. Fortunately he survived. Thats freaky man. What the hell is going on. May our guardian angels keep all us folks safe.

Thats sad. Colin was a legend. Even sadder that his son died in the crash.

Another sad addition to the list...albeit it was a week ago...

Norick Abe (or Norifumi Abe - here's where Rossi got his idea of Rossifumi), the famous GP rider passed away last week in a car accident in Tokyo.

May his soul rest in peace....
