Oh no.... the quintessential gentleman racer who only ever had fun.

RIP Bruce. Has brought tears to my eyes reading this. I'd been thinking how he'd been doing the last week or so being off the forum. He'd always been such a big part of XGN since I joined and will miss hearing his voice on TS  :(

I'll miss Bruce a lot. He was one of the core group of XGNers who made me feel welcome and comfortable joining in the XGN online racing community. He had the uncanny knack of remembering everyone's name - not just their racing nicknames but also their real names. It seemed to come naturally to him. He was the creator of XGN Thursday night racing and introduced, or should I say imposed, the Cobra on us thereby setting up the lasting legacy of Thursday night "historic" racing. I worked with him on some of the early seasons of Thursday night racing and he was extremely easy and enjoyable to collaborate with. He had the knack for creating car/track season combinations.

I would love to have a Cobra Cup for next season to remember Bruce's contribution.

An excellent suggestion.

I was thinking the same, when the time is closer to a new season next year I will make a post asking what were some of Bruce's favourite tracks from way back when he first started his online career.

I will miss Bruce also, like Gratulin said he made me feel welcome, Could not find someone more easy to get along with and kind, I loved his knowledge of old cars, and his little storeys, some had me laughing my head off, Lotus, Lots Of Trouble, Usually Serious :)  learnt a lot from Bruce,  it was a privilege to get to know him.
Careful,
careful,
careful with that axe, Eugene.

Oh my. What a sad day. Bruce was truly the quintessential gentleman racer. I will miss him deeply and the back of the pack will be just that little bit lonelier without with good natured wit.

You have made the finishing line my friend, I hope you enjoyed the race.

My sincere commiserations to his family who will miss him more than most, especially at this time of the year.

Although ive been away for a bit I have spoken to Bruce a few times over the last month or so
What a top notch bloke.  Never a bad or angry word
Racing against him at the back of the grid and lining him up in my sights in Americas Army was just good old fun
Very sad, but i do hope he has a controller in his hand and grin on his face
RIP Lemmy Caution ''AKA'' Bruce
