Possum Bourne Mourned

Rally champion Peter “Possum” Bourne, who died April 30th (aged 47), has been praised as “a humble man with rare ability, a relentless competitor who inspired a new generation of drivers.” “The most successful rally driver in the southern hemisphere”, he was Asia Pacific rally champion in 1993-94 and 2000 and won the Australian rally a record seven times. He was a key figure in turning Subaru – especially the highly-powered WRX – into a cult car which established extraordinary brand loyalty among customers. Bourne died in Dunedin Hospital after his life support system was turned off following a crash on April 18.
