Salut, Gilles!!

 Today marks the 30th anniversary of the tragic death of Gilles Villeneuve,formula 1 racer, May 8 1982. I remember EXACTLY where I was when the first reports of his accident started to air. My dad and I went to Canadian Tire to pick up something and I, like I did often, stayed in the truck to listen to AM radio CJRS Sherbrooke, to catch the news from the track as this was qualification day before the Sunday race. I remember journalist Christian Tortora saying: ''We have terrible news; Gilles Villeneuve just had a HORRIFIC crash on Zolder's track. It was very violent and we can only pray that he is OK''.
