though I never interacted with him personally, I still knew him from all his posts on the forum.
Felt very sad after reading this news.

May god bless his soul.

My condolences to his near and dear ones.

Guys Im shocked to read this... My heartfelt condolences to Robin's family.

May god give them the strength to cope with this sad time. I did not know him personally but seeing all the posts here tell me how much loved he was. He will be missed..

Let me also say this..seeing all the TBHP members most of whom have never met face to face, come together in a dark time actually brings tears to my eyes. Robin, you can rest in peace knowing that you left behind a large family who will miss you dearly.

I'm touched, moved and VERY VERY proud to be a part of TBHP.

I heard this news on Indiamike.com.

Even the moderators there who have no great interest in Indian motors or this forum feel a sense of shock and share the grief that a team must feel to loose somebody like this.

Deep, deep sympathy to his fellow mods, to his many friends on the board here.

To loose a colleague, team member or friend like this is bad enough. To loose such a young family member, a husband, a father, a son --- is something that I can barely imagine. Sympathy is not enough. Nothing is enough. What can I say? I don't have the right words. I am so sorry.

I am really pained to know about the tragedy. Though I am new to the forum but have read enough of Rtech's posts. It is sad that a member and a person, in the prime of his life is no more. I wish peace for robin and strength for his family.

Was shocked to hear this. Called McLaren yesterday and he confirmed that Robin is no longer with us.

My deepest condolences to his family and us T-Bhpians. May god give them the courage to go through these difficult times.

R.I.P Robin. We'll miss you.

The first time I met him was at a speedrun in 2004.
Then again, we met in 2005 where I was his "pit mechanic".
Then again, at another speedrun in 2005 in Bangalore.
And again,we met at a speedrun in 2006 and the last speedrun we met was in 2007 where the party pictures of him U've posted in the beginning.

I always thought there will be one person I will always meet even when Im 40 at the speedrun.
This has been too tough on me. I've known him for as long as i've been on the forum which feels like forever now.
I was with him at coimbatore only last week. Talking,laughing,pulling my leg...Its still in my eyes. I've been feeling like a zombie and in deeeply sorrow for the past 48 hours.

Robin, U're gonna always be here on the forum.I know U're riding the wheels off heaven which is DEFINITELY where U are. Ride safe,man. Ride safe!

Here is a picture on the job at his last event, 8 days back that I shot:
