Oh my. First it was Micheal Park, now Burns.<p>I always thought next year was the returning year for Burns - such a shame. And what a driver he was.<p>I suppose it was that Tumour then....<p>RIP

Wow, he was quite the driver, rather likeable too. It seems like the rally world can't keep its greats around. What a shame.

I'm so sorry about him, his family and all we WRC fans. I really thought he was gonna make it, but the illness was stronger.

Rally isn't at all popular in America(which is a shame), that's why no one knew him. <br>I was a Colin McRae fan until I stopped watching rally, and that was before 2000 and before Burns became more successful. Rally is awesone! ..seeing them drive cars sideways like they do is like art! I'm watching it more often now.<p>Sorry for Richard :(

Till 2001 Burns was in one team with McRae as far as i know at Subaru and he got 2nd place in 2000 and also before 2000 he was getting 4th and sucha places ... anyway ... i felt yery sad to see sucha great sportsman leaving so young ... :(
