Guthrie should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
2 time CART champion, and winner of the 2003 Indy 500. The world lost a true legend today.

Too bad. Sounds like he went doing what he loved, but man, so young.

RIP, Gil!

Very sad news and it seems it happened in an instant without warning.

Can’t believe he’s gone so suddenly. He always looked well. 20 years after he won the Indy 500 and his final Indycar. Not just a very talented driver, but always came across as a decent guy. RIP GdF

This just popped up on my YouTube feed. I was at this race all those years ago. It was a sombre affair, coming 11 days after 9/11 and a week after Alex Zanardi's awful crash. RIP Gil.

Loved the gesture by Lando of running a tribute helmet to de Ferran. Really nice touch
