10271595_10152043837186498_2183721423385142212_n Photographer and friend of Hooniverse, Ash Turner, passed away last Sunday evening. Last fall, he worked with us for the ALMS and WEC race at the Circuit of the Americas and he was a massively friendly, passionate car enthusiast with a good eye in photowork. A few of the local car culture organizations are hosting memorial events in the upcoming weeks, and Hoons are invited to join. Details after the jump. 1262811_697353603626235_199280275_o CenTex Cruises is hosting a memorial cruise and dinner on Saturday, May 17th. Tentative plans are to meet at Planet Fitness: 7100 U.S. 290 Austin, TX 78736 at around 10 am. Route will take us through favorite hill country driving roads, and an informal dinner is planed at the end of the runs. It’s a scenic, but challenging route; a hidden gem in the Texas countryside. Facebook event page is [here]. Exact plans for the day are currently fluid, but will be finalized on the page. In the absence of Texas Rally Sport, Brianne and brother, Kevin Corn, began Lone Star RallyCross. The inaugural event, held this weekend, will be dedicated to Ash. Facebook event page is [here]. We rallycrossers were working with him on a larger rallycross video project for the last year. When Ash got camera gear out, we got the Subarus rowdy: [youtube][/youtube] [youtube][/youtube] And larger projects were planned. Over the last year he had been gathering a collective of enthusiasts and photographers, with the ultimate goal of running an auto-enthusiast channel on YouTube — Similar to Drive or Petrolicious. This is where he excelled, I always thought. Great eye and enthusiasm for shooting. [youtube][/youtube] Details of his passing can be read [here], if you’re comfortable with the topic.
