RIP – Paul Walker

pw headerLate last night RIP Paul Walker appeared in our news feed and the immediate thought – bullshit. Waking up this morning with a heavy head was made worse by being informed it was far from it.

If you’re reading this on here there is no call to tell you who Walker was or what he did.

In my opinion while not the greatest of actors he was a genuine car fanatic and suited his role to a tee. In his personal life he competed in time attack series’ and owned numerous performance cars, even the silver V-Spec II Skyline he drove in 2 Fast 2 Furious was his own car.

Yesterday at 3.30pm in Valencia, California, Walker and Roger Rodas (CEO of Walker’s performance shop Ever Evolving) left a event held by his charity Reach Out Worldwide in a Porsche Carrera GT with Rodas driving. Shortly the car left the road, collided with a tree and burst into flames. Both occupants were confirmed dead at the scene.

Needless to say Paul Walker will be sadly missed, there is no doubt he was a huge part of something which shaped us and our scene more than 10 years ago and was continuing to entertain us to the present day.

RIP bro – “Ride or Die”
