RAHAL LETTERMAN RACING STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF PAUL NEWMAN
This statement is made by Rahal Letterman Racing on behalf of the team and of Bobby Rahal.
"We are deeply saddened by the passing of Mr. Newman. He was a man of great courage, determination and integrity and gave a lot not only to the world of auto racing, but to the world around us. His generosity knew no bounds and his work with helping children as well as what he achieved with aiding the environment will prove to help people for many years to come."
"I had the pleasure of driving for Mr. Newman in 1981 and I was richer for the experience. He was a man of class and he was also deservedly very highly regarded for his driving skills. The world is a poorer place today for his passing."
