I found out through our mutual Full Moon Rally friend Anne Jones/Jordan of Your Passing.
We always talked about printing t-shirts with: on the front does drinking cause rallying/racing or does rallying/racing cause drinking
Where avoiding the “Yellow Hairy Canary Mustang’s” red triangle (just before the water crossing, aka Subaru Splash) we ended up sliding into a large immovable tree right above the fore mentioned car & drivers Head. Ouchhhhhhh! We were so concerned about the depth of the river crossing and ended up 300 feet short of it on stage #1.
The impact making me the co-driver breathless ( I swear I kissed my belly button, so much for a new 5pt harness), was interrupted with concern and hilarity when Brian yelling for his prescription glasses (which were last seen out of the corner of my eye bouncing off the windshield) was blind as a bat. Trying to catch my breath, I informed him the glasses were probably under or behind his seat. Now, I see him release his belts, open the driver’s door and immediately disappear as he stepped out. All I could see was him hanging on to the door armrest with fingernails digging in, you see there was a 10 foot drop off on his side of the car cause we were racing along the side of a steep hill.
Sorry, I lost touch with you I moved to Orlando, Fl and now I find out you moved to San Francisco. Brian, We shall Toast and send a Full Mooning Salute for You, Our Irish Friend!
From all the Full Moon Team, This is Not the End!
Some photos of Brian Fitzgerald are here:
Brian was a beloved member of the Communications crew for many years. His
Brian M Fitzgerald, 1953 - 2007
Brian loved racing: the cars, the smell, the noise, the people, working the turns. He loved being a part of SCCA. He thought the view into the valley at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca from Turn 7 was one of the most beautiful sights he had ever seen.
Brian's family will be placing a memorial for him at Laguna Seca. The memorial might be participation in the “Steps to the Corkscrew” brick patio program at the Corkscrew with a fitting inscription (he was a brick of a fellow) or something similar. The final decision of the specific memorial will be done in consultation with SCCA San Francisco, Laguna Seca Raceway and the family.
If you would like to donate to this memorial, please send your check to the following address before February 1, 2008:
Brian Fitzgerald Fund
Make your check payable to “S.C.R.A.M.P” and please mark your check with Brian’s name.
