Gilles - 30 years and counting
Geez.. two bad anniversaries within the same week. As one announcer put it: "He was a poet of a driver"

One of the events where I can rememeber exactly where Iwas when I heard and saw the news (just checked into the Atlanta Hilton, turned on the TV to "Wide World of Sports" and that hideous video of the accident pops up on the screen).

As the signs at Monza say:

SEMPER
GILLES

Madness has its toll.  Please have exact change.

It's probably no coincidence, the season is underway and they are all starting to push.
