A touching tribute to Gugu Zulu

A video of his last year in the National Rally championship

I chose not to report on the death of South African racing driver Gugu Zulu because it was all over the internet and it felt wrong somehow to be writing about his death. Perhaps it was just too much of a shock. But this video is just too beautiful not to share.

From the moment I stepped in to this industry I was aware of who Gugu Zulu was. That was nine years ago. Over the years I have met him on the odd launch or been at a track event where he was and have made small talk. He was truly one of the gentlest people I have ever met. What a beautiful man he was.
