Sad news, always felt he was a bit under-rated.

RIP

 

Remember him looking quite quick in the 1989 F3000 season review video I bought a good few years back, always sad to see a racer go.

How sad. He came 2nd in the Formula Ford Festival in 1986, after Roland Ratzenberger who sadly isn't among as anymore either. I remember in '89 he was on pole position in his first F3000 race (at Silverstone) and he finished 2nd. I thought: this guy must be pretty good but the rest of the season he didn't score any more point. May he rest in peace.

And Pete Rogers who came third in the Laser at the 86 Festival sadly lost his life at Donington the following year :(

Saw Philippe race several times in '88 and at the well remembered F3000 race at Silverstone in '89 RIP.

 

Condolences to Phillipe's family and friends.
