Oh crikey I am so very , very sad to hear this. I discovered his wonderful videos some years ago and they showed exactly how to do it - no silly music , no irritating voice over , just a bloke driving a racing car fast and well. I was so relieved he got out of the crash in the Can AM Shadow this year too.



ETA - some googling reveals it was the inevitable Coronavirus . Poor guy

Yes. When I heard the news of his passing the first thing I kept trying to reconcile was the images of that Can-AM Shadow blowover crash, and that he had survived that, so...and then that he had become a covid stat.

He was a long time race driving instructor and coach, and his communication talents show in those videos.

Much like Gene Felton, I only saw Jim Pace drive after the prime of his career in HSR. But I've seen him race and win many times. Condolences to his family, friends, and fans.

A great shame. Jim was still pretty damn quick at 59.
