I remember that day in Seville, Spain 1985 like yesterday.
Bob was already the F1-V8 World Champion before the last race of the year in Seville.
I was standing in the pit together with my brother Lennart watching Bob testing.
He crashed in the turn in front of us. The Hodges F1 boat was upside down way to long with before the rescue team got Bob out.

Bobís career was cut short by this racing accident, after which it was discovered he had an aneurysm.

Bob passed away in 1997.
