GMR&SC Statement
The motor racing world awoke on Thursday morning to the shocking news that motorsport photographer Michael Samuels, aka Mikey Spice, lost his life in very tragic circumstances last evening outside his home in Jamaica.
There really can be no words to describe how great a person Mikey had always been. Mikey brought us as close to the racing action as we could have gotten, but the greatness in Mikey lay in his personality. He was always a friendly and jolly person who would move mountains to ensure those around him were happy.
Many of us formed a very close bond with Mikey over the years, and he will be missed dearly.
The GMR&SC would like to extend condolences to the friends and family of Mikey, and ask you to be strong in this time, as Mikey would not have wanted to see you sad. Rest in peace, Mikey.
