I join with so many others who knew Latvian most famous drifter Gatis Lapans in offering my deepest sympathy on his passing, who has died in tragic circumstances this week. Although it is little consolation at this sad time, it should be of some satisfaction to know that in his passing you can celebrate the end of a very long and productive life — in 2011 lapans took title of vice-champion in NEZ drift championship. This year he started developing drift in India. Gatis was 29 years old. Rest In Peace, Gatis!
