Roger Rodas: 1975 – 2013

1 Mins read

Pirelli World Challenge driver Roger Rodas was killed this weekend in a road accident that also took the life of Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker.

Rodas’ early racing career saw racing Porsche GT3 Cup race cars in the Porsche Owner’s club and other amateur race series before taking part in the Pirelli Porsche Driver’s Cup Series championship in 2012. In 2012 he took two victories, six podiums and finished second overall in the championship.

He made the move to the Pirelli World Challenge GTS driving a Ford Boss S in 2013 and took part in 10 races throughout the year.

A passion for high-performance sports cars saw him amass an assortment of limited production Saleen and Shelby Mustangs, with his collection becoming the heart of Always Evolving, a Southern California based company that provides, buys and sells luxury and performance cars that was set up by Walker and Rodas.

Rodas is survived by a wife and two children. Walker leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter.
