    RIP Chris - you're a bloody legend!

    Although we have been expecting this announcement for many months, it was still a great shock to hear it on TV3 tonight. Nice to see that TV3 acknowledged the significance on this news, and made it their lead story, instead of burying it amongst its sports news.

    Totally stunned - I didn't know he'd been battling cancer! Off to join Eoin, Denny, Bruce, Phil... and all the others.......
    Farewell Chris, and thanks for all the memories.
    Condolences to his family and friends....

    This was not unexpected by me, but never the less it's a very sad day. As Enzo said "The best driver...." RIP, best wishes family and frends

    Love that shot of the Matra! Chris as we loved to see him...

    Certainly, 73 is too young to go, even if he played among those much older than him for years. Let's remember his Tasman title, his two NZIGP wins, his AGP win and those battles between him and Clark and Rindt in the 49s.

    as well he had to face the Christmas bowling of this bloke at the family farm!
    God speed Chris.
