Quote
All American Racers, his wife Evi and the Gurney family issued the following statement:

"With one last smile on his handsome face, Dan drove off into the unknown just before noon today, January 14, 2018. In deepest sorrow, with gratitude in our hearts for the love and joy you have given us during your time on this earth, we say 'Godspeed.'

"...Smell the sea and feel the sky,

Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic..."

Began the tradition of spraying Champagne.
At Le Mans, no less.
And weren't the French horrified at that act. ;D
