    Default R.I.P. David Leslie

    I'm sure your all aware of the tradgedy that occured yesterday. Yet again, we have lost another great driver in the world of Motorsport, namely the BTCC with the loss of the Scottish driver David Leslie.

    David joined the BTCC in 1990 during the Super Touring era, and in 1992 joined the Ecurie Ecosse Vauxhall Racing Team driving the brilliant Cavalier. In 1994 he joined the Mazda team and in 1995 he joined the works Honda Team. After reliablility issues he then joined the works Nissan Team in the Nisan Primera alongside Anthony Reid from 1997-1999. At the end of 1999, Nissan pulled out of the BTCC where in 2002-2003, David drove the Proton. Due to the lack of success David left the BTCC Championship at the end of 2003 where he went on to join Eurosport as a commentator on the World Touring Cars.

    Our thoughts go out to his family and friends and for those of you that ever saw David racing, i would ask you all if you would leave your kind words and comments on the site below.

    Thank you.

    I didn't see much news yesterday so missed that! Blimey, I remember meeting the guy when I was on a photo shoot for Nissan at Brands Hatch when he was driving for them.

    Very sad.

    Ah, now I'm up to speed. Hadn't realised they'd released names of the five dead from yesterday's plane crash. Jeez, recently Colin McRae in a helicopter, now David Leslie in a plane!

    I remember him in the Nissans a few years ago when we were really into the BTTC.

    Very sad loss of five lives. RIP.
