    Yes, he was a tough and determined man. He deserved the respect he earned.

    I suspect most have but if you haven't seen Rush it's well worth a watch based on his rivalry with James Hunt.

    Very sad news. One of my heroes.

    I always liked his 'no bullshit' approach. He used to say 'shit' a lot but I guess media exposure toned it down a bit.

    The reality is that the sport finally killed him. Namely, the lung damaged he suffered breathing in toxic chemicals when his car caught fire.

    RIP Niki, possibly the greatest.

    I wonder what James H said to him when he arrived in the last pit stop? "What kept you?"
    Please take good care of your S2k keep it by your side for long and enjoy it from the bottom of your heart and share the quality and legacy of the S2k with many friends so that the legend of the S2k will continue for long. Shigeru Uehara Designer Honda S2000.
