Cyan Racing mourn the loss of one of their technicians in Vila Real

The Cyan Racing team are mourning the shock passing of one of their technical team in a non-racing related incident in the Vila Real paddock on Saturday night.

The team have announced that a 21-year-old technician from the UK died after suddenly becoming ill on Saturday evening. The team have not yet released his name while family and friends continue to be informed.

The technician received immediate medical assistance, but they were unable to resuscitate him and he passed away at the nearby hospital.

“Our thoughts are with his family and friends and we would like to offer our dearest condolences,” said Cyan Racing CEO Christian Dahl.

“He was a young and valued team member and he will be deeply missed. Without technicians such as him, what we all work for every day of the year and have a deep passion for would not be possible.”
