Jason Richards fight with cancer ends at 35

Post by F1V1 on Thu Dec 15, 2011 10:17 pm

From the V8 Supercar facebook page.

Unfortunately we can confirm that Champion V8 Supercar driver Jason Richards passed away peacefully at home with his wife, Charlotte by his side at 8.00pm last night (Thursday, 15 December 2011).

Jason’s family is appreciative of the many thousands of people who have offered their love and support during his battle with illness over the past 14 months.
A memorial service to honour Jason and his career will be held at Sandown in the coming weeks.

The family requests that their privacy be respected during their time of grief.

This news is very sad but unsurprising considering what he was dealing with.

RIP. Reminds me of Fermin Velez. A talented driver taken in his prime by cancer. Sad

R.I.P Jason Richards. He will be remembered by me as being one of the most unluckiest drivers in V8 Supercars.

In the same vein, Gunnar Nilsson should have achieved more if he hadn't died of cancer in 78.
