I have just read on Speedweek site (no direct link possible) that Austrian Michael Schafleitner passed away July, 6th, aged 77. Many of you will remember his famous, Norton-based gearboxes.
Sad news. I had the pleasure of working with him for a few weeks in the mid eighties on a Rotax project. Like most of the Austrians who were around the GP paddock at that time, he was fun and eccentric and a very interesting character. Brilliant mind too. RIP
