Tom Walkinshaw: 1946 - 2010

Tom Walkinshaw passed away over the weekend after battling with cancer. If you're wondering who Mr Walkinshaw is, here's a brief montage of his involvement in motorsport (founder of Tom Walkinshaw Racing) around the globe for the last couple of decades.

Cutting his teeth in sportscars, he put Jaguar back on the map at LeMans.

The 7 time F1 champ won his first title in 1994.

Buying the underachieving Arrows team, he nearly pulled off a miracle win with Hill in 1997.

Yep, he was also a big reason why HRT are still top tier in the V8 Supercars.

He was 64 and leaves behind his wife, Martine, and two children, Ryan and Sean.
