RE: Björn Waldegård Passes Away
This was very sad news. I have great memories of him at Safari Rally. Some years ago when I met Ove Andersson at Laguna Seca I asked him about Björn Waldegård, he smiled and said 'everytime I ask him how are you, his answer is "I am waiting to die." Sadly, both are now gone.

He was a very nice man - I saw him several times at the Goodwood Festival and he always had time to chat to the fans.

Five and a half minutes of appropriate noise:
