Possum Bourne died today in Dunedin Hospital

Possum Bourne died today in Dunedin Hospital.

A champion rally driver and NZ sporting legend, Possum raced Subaru rally cars for over 20 years.

Subaru of New Zealand General Manager, Mr Wallis Dumper, said:

“ Words fail me on how to express our grief and the enormity of this. We can only express our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to Peggy and family.

Possum lived and epitomised the spirit of a Kiwi sporting hero. He is a rally legend and Subaru icon.

Our Subaru family, the dealer team, Australian and Japanese partners and worldwide Subaru associates will miss him dearly.

We will remember him always!”
