A saddening blow was dealt to the Australian racing community earlier this week, as Jamey Blaikie — former Porsche motorsports director in Australia, and seasoned racing administrator — was involved in a crash that took his life, as reported by Autoblog.
Blaikie was most remembered for helping to bring the Porsche Carrera Cup to Australia in 2003, and was widely known within the V8 Supercars community, as well. A race car driver himself, he left Porsche Cars Australia last year to drive in the GT Asia series.
The tragic accident that took his life occurred on Monday in Fiji, where 52 year-old Blaikie was reportedly doing charity work when his rental car collided with a truck. We at Motrolix would like to offer our condolences, and wish the very best to his friends and loved ones.
