Dave Maraj

Sad to see that Dave Maraj, the former boss of Champion Racing, lost his life in a boating accident. I loved the swirly designs on Porsches and then the iconic Audi R8 and was gutted when the team closed its doors in 2008. A great loss to American motorsport.

Sad to hear this. And, yes, I also loved the Champion Racing cars, especially, with their reflective swirls. Tim Crete of FastDetails.com was the premier photographer of these cars and he taught me a lot. Just looked up to see what Tim was doing and here is what I missed...

Appreciate what you have.

Tim Crete........... a sad loss. Like his boss, Dave Maraj.

Tim and I exchanged occasional long-winded emails once he had quit the motor sport business, he was certainly a thinker, perhaps too much of one in this strange world we live in.

Sound advice you give.

Sad loss, both of them.

I too liked the Champion cars. It's one of the few 1/43 models I really really wanted to have in my working room.
RIP Dave

As for Tim, I used to visit his site many many years ago, until the updates became less frequent. Never really noticed what happened to him, even though I am a DSC regular (and have been since the start)
