Thanks Jason, it was taken at Oulton Park on July 21st 1991. The wisp of hair in the picture belongs to me, which makes it all the more poignant.

I'll add my RIPs as well, if I may. I remember watching Paul on many occasions, believing him to be a likely star of the future. His death was a huge loss to his family and the sport. RIP.

I agree with you there Aysedasi. I remain convinced that Paul would have made to F1.

Thirteen years ago! It only seems like yesterday. And how bizzare, I was only thinking of him a few days ago. RIP Paul.

Paul really did seem to have the talent to go all the way to formula 1. I always think of him when I cross the bridge into Oulton. RIP

Gosh, I hadn't realised it was so long ago! I remember watching Paul at Brands in F2 which was paid for by Derek. Everyone remarked on his smooth driving style and I believe Derek always thought Paul was the better driver. Jenson Button is very reminiscent of Pauls style which just goes to show how far he could have gone.

To Derek and his family go my heartfelt wishes. A huge loss to motorsport.

RIP Paul Warwick.

Thought I'd add my memories of Paul Warwick. I recall his days in FF & F3 but it wasn't till he entered Brit F3000 in 1991 that I became a fan. He signed with Madgwick Racing, based in Brackley, where I then lived and as they were the local team (pre BAR / Honda obviously) they were always well supported in town. I and my family travelled up to Oulton Park that weekend to see the race and although it's a scary 15 years ago now I still remember it like it was yesterday. I watched the race from the inside of the run down to Cascades. It was a typically dominant performance from Paul and I took several shots of him as he built a comanding lead. Then the red flags came out and the cars came in. I wasn't close to a loudspeaker so couldn't hear what had happened. There had obviously been a fire as I could see black smoke coming from the direction of Knickerbrook. I had no binoculars but through my cameras telephoto lense I was able to make out the parked car of Richard Dean, plus the wreck of another car that I couldn't identify. I knew it must be bad when the marshalls began holding up blankets to shield the view of what we soon found out was Paul Warwick. I recall the police being on the scene too. The F3000 race was called, with Paul declared as the winner as he'd been leading when he crashed, and I think the support races continued - but we left the track. We'd seen enough and it was obviously bad. The news that Paul had died came through on the radio as we drove back to Brackley. I'd attended countless races with my dad since the mid seventies and had never witnessed a fatality - I haven't since either thankfully. It was a huge shock - Paul was a mega talent who would have shone in F1. I certainly rated him above his Brit contemporaries like Hill, Irvine and Blundell - and look what they achieved.

I was at Cadwell Park that day and couldn't quite believe it when someone told me the news.

I'd watched him from his Formula Ford days - a true talent and a great loss.

I still remember the shock of hearing the tragic news. I rated Paul as one of our best talents, and a very sad loss. There was no question that he was headed for F1.

Fifteen years ago since Paul was taken from us all.

You were a shining star.

Gone but never forgotten.

RIP Paul.

Back in the late 1980s Paul was driving in the EFDA FF2000 series when it visited Mondello Park that September. His transporter was parked next to ours in the paddock and I remember Paul, his dad and his mom sitting on three deck chairs right beside us in the Co. Kildare sunshine. We were chatting away to them, they were all really nice people. It looked like life couldn't get much better.
Afterwards I took a keen interest in Paul's career and despite the problems he had in F3, knew that talent he demonstrated so convincingly in FF1600 would shine through later. It certainly did in the British F2 series and marked him out as a future F1 star.
I was literally stunned when I heard the news he'd been killed in Oulton. Derek's visible outpouring of grief afterwards was a reminder of what a close family the Warwick's were. I cannot even begin to think how devastated his parents must have been. The Autosport tribute [which contained so many messages from Paul's friends] a week or two later spoke volumes about how everyone in motorsport felt at that time.

RIP Paul.
