May not mean much to those who ain't from the UK, but today we mourn the sad passing of commentator Sid Waddell, known for his colourful descriptions , his use of the English language and that Geordie accent.
Some of my favourite quotes has come from the man himself
Some may remember mx5 pictures in the car thread, THOSE pictures with the motorholics girls, and a couple of them with a very special lady sat in the middle of the bonnet, one of the true loves of my life, my charlotte.
This was a test fitting she did for a mate if his brides wedding dress as she was pretty much the same size and build, and it was to be a suprise wedding, and boom, here she is...
Last night, she was taken away, and as much as it sounds like a pun, she really did live for speed, and went doing what she loved, motorsport.
Prod Sid's contribution to F1 is one we as fans will always be indebted to, especially the work put in after the death of Senna. Without the work, the sport would have been poorer place, Hakkinen's crash in Adelaide being a prime example.
Not a great believer in an afterlife nor am I a particularity religious man , however I would like to think that he is currently fishing alongside Senna right now.
