    It was just announced that Possum Bourne has passed away, after being removed from life support systems when it was determined the extent of his injuries meant he would never recover.

    Here's the write up about his removal from life support on WRC.com

    I've heard variations of the same thing.


    Whats known is that he was doing a recce for a hill climb event and was on his way back down the hill when his vehicle was struck by another group of competitor cars that was going up the hill. Combined speed was 70 mph (35 for each car) Possums car was struck on the driver's door/front quarter.


    Now the variations are:

    A) That possom had crossed the middle line into the oncoming traffic and tried to swerve out of the way, being struck by the oncoming car.

    B) One of the cars going up the hill tried to pass another to get clear of the dust, and struck Possum as he tried to swerve clear.
