Just heard it in a by-note during the German coverage of today's Dakar stage. Couldn't and didn't want to believe it until I found it on Ingo Löchert's web-site www.rallye-tenere.net
,too at the end of Jean Claude Olivier's biography. And it's just been a simple accident in traffic.
A very sad day for all followers of desert-rallyeing ...
Sad greetings, Hans-Günter 'Bambi' Bambach
