Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

MN is sad to re­port the loss of mo­tor­sport com­men­ta­tor and TV pro­ducer Peter Baert.

Baert had be­come the reg­u­lar voice of the Euro­pean Rally Cham­pi­onship, hav­ing moved from For­mula 1 cov­er­age to first the IRC then the ERC with Eurosport in 2008. A fit­ness fa­natic, Peter was at home in a com­men­tary booth, the ser­vice park or in a pro­duc­tion of­fice.

His en­gag­ing per­son­al­ity en­abled him to strike an in­stant rap­port with big names and emerg­ing tal­ents.

The 52-year-old re­cently lost his fight with cancer. He’ll be missed by all who knew him.
